Voter's Needing ID is Unfair?

Check out the story written by Charlie Sykes for this weeks CNI Newspapers. The voter ID controversy has been brewing in Wisconsin for a while, especially after the 2000 and 2004 elections. The Governor has vetoed two bills requring photo ID to vote, calling it a poll tax, etc.

Charlie hit's the nail on the head on the story, check it out, because I know other states have passed laws on cold medicine similar to Wisconsins, let me know if you feel the same about ID's to vote after you read this.

I know I said limited blogging this weekend, but my acid reflux has me awake, and I gotta do something.

HA! That's the best analogy I've seen so far to use in against the anti-Voter ID group. TN and MN have the cold med which contain ephedrine laws as WI. In fact, I found out you not only have to present your Drivers License but also sign the pharmacy's log.

Sorry about the acid reflux.

As you know, we had a major election last week here in VA. Just as last year during the Presidential election, I had to show ID. If I didn't have ID, I would have had to sign an affadavit and it would have been a "provisional vote". I wasn't here in VA when they started to require identification, but I don't recall any outcry.

I wonder if they would have accepted my wife's permanent U.S. resident card as proper ID? Naw, we wouldn't even try.

When I read Charlie's article the hypocrisy of the folks who pass a law requiring ID to buy sudaphed but claim it would be bad to have it to vote just cracked me up.

Stuff like this makes me sure that ensuring voter fraud is important to certain groups.

Asacan, just move to Wisconsin, she could probably vote 3 times since no paperwork but a bill is required to vote.
