    If they're just voting in the general how would that change anything?

    poor blacks, they are so disenfranchised
    Without IDs that means no gov welfare, electricity, write checks, use credit cards, get loans, get alcohol or tobacco, get insurance for a car etc etc etc

    If they just had a general election ballot, they only vote for president. That has nothing to do with Congress. The issue was not permitting students to use their student ID to vote, not whether they could vote. Obviously NC allows them to vote.

    Why should non-residents vote locally, they should vote in the locality where they are a resident.

    Voter registration isn't segregated into local, state, and federal. There is on registration for all three and normally you have to meet residency requirements to register.

    There is no ballot where "they only vote for president". Ballots include all elections - local, state, and federal.

    The concern I responded to was students voting in local elections. I suggested that as a solution to that supposed problem. They could certainly make that a reality if they wished.

    You don't read well. The issue wasn't whether or not students could or should vote, it was that they were not permitted to use their student ID to do so. That means they are able to register and vote but need a separate ID to do so.
