    The Republican dominated Pennsylvania legislature has enacted a law requiring voters to show a valid driver's license before they will be permitted to vote. Guess who this affects most in the two major, Pennsylvanisa cities.

    Pennsylvania's strict voter ID law faces ACLU lawsuit - latimes.com

    Philadelphia and Pittsburgh are predominately Democratic cities. "If the election were held today, we would have more than 100,000 of our voters who could not vote," said Stephanie Singer, chairwoman of Philadelphia's elections commission. "It's a cynical attempt by the Republican leadership to steal the election. And absolutely it could sway the outcome."

    The ACLU is challenging this law - and rightly so.

    Illegal's, dead people, and multiple voting by individuals equates to voter suppression? Why not just be honest, it IS voter suppression of illegally cast Democrat Votes. Cry me a river.

    in other words this is making a bad process an honest one and I WILL NOT stand for it. Votes for all regardless of nationally as long as they vote democratic.

    But of course the election isn't today. Therefore residents have 3.5 months to get an ID. Something most Americans posses from the age of 15 or 16

    The right to vote is afforded only to US citizens. So, the local government decides to try to confirm that someone is indeed a US citizen and the democrats complain. Why am i not surprised?

    why would they make a law to stop a non exsistant crime in which said law would then create a worse problem than what they designed the law to "fix"?
