It's not even a question. The Republicans, acting in concert across state governments, show clear intent to steal this election, by hook or by crook. (God knows, Romney can't win it on his own.) That's what Republicans do when they want something: They lie, cheat, steal, misrepresent, and otherwise take voters' rights away and work it to their own advantage.

This is what the party of Lincoln has reduced themselves to. Really shameful that once a party of integrity has been so thoroughly hijacked.

Oh stop with the hysterics. First of all, if they changed their address to the dorms where they are staying, they should have a photo ID with that address on it. If they never changed their address, they can use mail in ballots to their proper district.

I think this is what Morris is trying to get at when he says that democrats are oversampled in polls so ignore them--if a big chunk of those d's show up and aren't allowed to vote, even though they're eligible but don't have the ID required under these new laws, it's going to be a problem. He's banking on the fact that registered D voters may not "really" be registered voters.

As RR would say "there you go again" I just love where you get all your information, it is so unbiased...

There is absolutely nothing about voter ID that prevents anyone from voting. You register to vote in the state where you are going to college if you want to vote there: if not you get an absentee ballot from the state you are registered in. If you are too lazy or dumb to figure this out, you should not be voting. Maybe it is time we go back to the min age of 21 for voting..

There is absolutely NO REASON a college student doesn't have proper photo ID. You need one to get into the damn school. Like I said earlier, if they changed their address to the school then their ID will have that address, if not they can vote in their home district via an absentee ballot.

Silly republicans wanting only Americans to actually vote in our elections. I really do not mind disenfranchising foreign nationals with college ids from voting

College/University ID is acceptable in PA.

A voter-ID mutiny launched by Democratic-controlled Montgomery and Allegheny Counties showed signs of spreading across the state Friday, as Philadelphia and a handful of other local governments said they, too, would consider issuing poll-ready identification cards through county-run nursing homes and colleges.
The question becomes if a person can go to the state licensing center with as little identification as SSN card what is the purpose of this? They made accommodations for these facilities specifically to insure the elderly and the college students did not have any issues. It better not be shown they are issuing these to just anyone without some form of qualification.

On the topic of students in general frankly they shouldn't be voting where the school is at. We had incident here a few years back with an arena they wanted to finance with public funds, it was put on the ballot and narrowly defeated. It wouldn't of been close except the out of town college vote, those students would have been long gone and the residents here would have been stuck with the bill.
