People need to get off their asses and get some ID then. It cost me 5$ to get a state id card when I lost my license,if you are to lazy to get ID you don't need to vote then.There was fraud in Iowa they
"lost" votes in New Hampshire dead people voted in Maine it was just full on fraud as far as the vote count. People seriously need to stop crying if they are asked to show they are who they say they are if you want to vote. We have to show ID to buy tobacco and alcohol we have to show ID to rent a vehicle and so many other things but the 1 thing that is very important we don't make people show ID for. Its absolutely stupid,and of course blacks make it to be a race thing they are great at that...time for them to shut up do as everyone else does and get a freaking ID.

No one is not being allowed to not vote. Get ID of some kind and you can vote. You have to have ID to drive,buy beer and ciggs yet we don't make people show ID to pick the people who run our country. That is some ass backwards stuff.

Oh, I'm sure you heard the judge that made the ruling SIGNED the Walker recall petition. No bias there, huh? Once it gets kicked up the ladder, the injunction will go away.

I think some reasonable id verification is needed, however, I think ID issues can be taken too far as invasion. FL "Real ID" compliance is good example. Costs for this can be much higher than many states. 5 dollars is nominal, but not all states have reasonable id costs or guidelines.

That said I really don't think voter ID is where the emphasis should be concerning voting fraud.
