    Gee, the folks who don't want people to have to prove who they are when they come to vote play the race card as their rationale. I'm shocked. The race card. Whodathunk it?

    Yeah... because those persons other than whites MUST have different standards to qualify for a photo ID, right?? :rolleyes:

    This hubbub over requiring people to prove who they are and that they are eligible to vote, when they vote, is beyond me

    With absentee ballots you have time to do proper verification, also to make sure the same person didnt vote twice. Its hard to do a background check via paperwork when you have 50 people in line waiting to vote. Therefore the logical method is to have the person present and ID as proof.

    I think its pretty reasonable, you should have to identify yourself when you vote.
