    Voter ID laws will disfranchise (X) amount of voters and prevent (Y) amount of fraudulent votes. Neither number is zero and there is no way of knowing the exact amounts. To my way of thinking any voting rule that results in (X>0) is not worth the price of (Y=0).

    How precious is your right to vote? When these laws are in place it will allow poll watchers to challenge the eligibility of people so much easier and invalidate their rights on BS grounds.

    Maybe I should be even clearer, the cost of robbing someone of their vote on a mere technicality is not worth the unquantifiable benefit of preventing fraudulent votes, not sure it is the problem some people make it out to be.

    Nobody is being "robbed" by not following the law. There is nothing complicated or unfair with voter ID laws like lefties like to portray. You lefties only want to follow the laws you like and think you are above the law. Robbing a candidate of being elected because of fraud is the real problem.

    "Occupied"? I thought I smelled something. Goodnight.

    If you cant figure out how to obtain an ID than maybe you're just too fucking dumb to vote???

    Considering all the voting fraud that goes on an ID requirement to vote is a good thing.

    Besides, voter id laws disenfranchise no one...

    Funny how I have to show an ID to buy my beer and cigarettes, however if you talk to some - showing an ID to elect the next president would be an atrocity..

    There is no valid argument for NOT showing an ID to vote..

    In theory I could register under 10 different names and vote 10 different times if I had to show no ID...

    Progressives are opposed to voter ID laws because they strongly rely on voter fraud.
