Americans are so down on President Obama at the moment that, if they could do the 2012 election all over again, they'd overwhelmingly back the former Massachusetts governor's bid.

The burdens that are relevant to the issue before us are those imposed on persons who are eligible to vote but do not possess a current photo identification that complies with the requirements of SEA 483.16 The fact that most voters already possess a valid driver's license, or some other form of acceptable identification, would not save the statute under our reasoning in Harper, if the State required voters to pay a tax or a fee to obtain a new photo identification. But just as other States provide free voter registration cards, the photo identification cards issued by Indiana's BMV are also free. For most voters who need them, the inconvenience of making a trip to the BMV, gathering the required documents, and posing for a photograph surely does not qualify as a substantial burden on the right to vote, or even represent a significant increase over the usual burdens of voting.

Supreme court says you are wrong romo.



According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, four states (including Georgia) have "strict" photo ID requirements. Another seven have photo ID requirements. Here's how black turnout compared to white turnout in those 11 states:

In five (Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Michigan and Tennessee) black turnout surpassed white turnout.
In four (Kansas, Louisiana, New Hampshire and South Dakota) there was no statistical difference between black and white turnout rates.
In two (Hawaii and Idaho) white turnout surpassed black turnout.

Democrats allege that voter ID will suppress the vote in predominantly Hispanic regions. Hidalgo County sits on the Texas-Mexico border and is 90% Hispanic. In 2011, an average of just over 4,000 voted in the constitutional amendment election. In 2013, an average of over 16,000 voted.


I am sure the above link will be spurned by the DR left, but it shows why voter fraud is hard to find even when it occurs, but easy to do.


FTA: For example, he says, there was evidence that convicted felons voted even though they're not allowed to under state law. But it turns out that the state mailed them their ballots, making it difficult to prove that the felons willfully broke the law.

So, illegal votes, but not prosecutable. Do situations like this show up in the "31"? VERY doubtful.

Poll tax? Utter nonsense. It has been shown time and time again that a photo ID is easily obtainable and in 2014 a necessity.

Democrats - getting the "dead" vote for 50 years.
