Voter ID law is blocked

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

From the paper today:

A lower judge threw out the law last month, saying it infringes on the fundamental right to vote.

full story, emphasis added.

Someone needs to throw that judge out, last I checked voting in the US was a privilege granted to all US citizen's and removed only under certain circumstances, such as a felony conviction.

The story CLAIMS that in order for people to get an ID they must spend $15 (in Missouri) for a certified copy of their birth certificate. I paid $12 for mine from Kansas to get my passport. My question is WHAT THE HECK ARE PEOPLE DOING WALKING AROUND WITHOUT ANY STATE IDENTIFICATION?

My money on this is that it is blocked so those in the US illegally can "legally" vote! :angry:

edit:forgot to end my quote! :(

Also according to the article:

It also bars enforcement of a requirement that people produce specified proof of citizenship to register to vote.

CO DL... had to renew today.. I moved so I reupped my voting priv... If you get DL they automatically figure that you are here legally. no other checks as far as i know... never had to show birth cert. and I'm sure there are ways around it.

In order to register to vote, you must have a state ID, and they check your citizenship when they register you. Why the need for the double check?

How do they know it's you who showed up at the polls? Here in NJ they have you sign and compare your new signature to the one they have on file. That is not, IMO, a very good way of ascertaining identity. Why not at least check drivers license so they can verify identity? I agree the time to verify eligibility to vote is at the time of registration, not at the polling station. But an ID check oughta be done.

Sure. I meant there's no need to verify citizenship at the polls. Showing your state ID should be sufficient.

Here, they check your ID.

But in NJ they don't even ask for that much. The Democrats oppose any attempts to legislate that. Why? Apparently their voters can't afford the exhorbitant fees involved in going to the DMV.

ETA: According to http://www.nj.gov/oag/elections/vote_id_req.html, voters in NJ are required to show ID. I would have rememebred showing ID since I voted back in Nov 04. I'm not sure what to think :unsure:

That's just it. In MA, as far as I know, the only way to register is through the DMV by getting a license or ID. Any other method is just silly IMO.

When I was in college I was able to register to vote just by filling out a form though. I put my address as my father's in CT. They never even checked any ID. How stupid is that?

Apparently their voters can't speak English either, because they fought tooth and nail to keep ballots in foreign languages (mostly Spanish) even though naturalized citizens must be proficient in our language to get citizenship. How many native born Americans go through the public education system without learning our language? It's kind of lame (and suspicious) reasoning.

The Dems are vying to be the party of the illegal alien via amnesty and personal appearances at illegal alien rallies by Dem politicians.

Lets see...no citizenship proof to vote, ballots in a foreign language, and openly courting illegal aliens with promises of amnesty. This stinks so bad that I gag every time I think of the implications.

And these people have the gall to whine about hanging chads and dimples. It is a sad day for democracy and our republic when this corruption of our system is allowed.


"Credibility in immigration policy can be summed up in one sentence: Those who should get in, get in; those who should be kept out, are kept out; and those who should not be here will be required to leave."

"...for the system to be credible, people actually have to be deported at the end of the process."

US Congresswoman Barbara Jordan (D-TX)

Testimony to the House Immigration Subcommittee, February 24, 1995
