Whether you believe voter fraud is a huge problem or just a minor annoyance, theres no way you can argue that it doesnt happen. Virtually every recent election has been marred by reports of people voting under fake names, voting multiple times, or casting fraudulent ballots. Supporters of Voter ID laws have long argued that theres a simple way to stop most of these problems from occurring: require a photo ID from each registered voter in order to cast a ballot.
Its simple, quick, and prevents disenfranchisement by securing the process. In short, its a no-brainer. So, obviously, Democrats hate it.
Theyre out of luck in Virginia where, this afternoon, Republican Governor Bob McDonnell signed his states Voter ID mandate into law.
According to Reuters:
McDonnell signed the measure with the recognition that almost all citizens already have acceptable forms of photo ID that would allow them to vote and a majority of voters support this policy, he said in a statement.
The legislation provides for free identification with the bearers photo to any registered voter who does not have one.
McDonnell also ordered the State Board of Elections to start a public information program to tell voters about the new requirement before the 2014 elections.

They KNOW their constiuents are stupid and poor...they WANT them, helll they CREATED them.....they also know that Democrats DO VOTE FRAUD quite well!!
“Virtually every recent election has been marred by reports of people voting under fake names, voting multiple times, or casting fraudulent ballots.”
Virtually every recent election has been marred by reports of Democrats voting under fake names, voting multiple times, or casting fraudulent ballots.
There, fixed it.
So how come the Democrats don’t scream and hold their breath until blue over the other 99% of transactions requiring an ID. They need it for their food stamp allocations right? As a start.
And I strongly believe that we should disallow ANY election results from states that do not have believable voter ID.
Which would eliminate the results from the vast majority of our “blue” states...corrupt and sleazy as they are.
hmmm, I thought this was already law. I’ve been showing my drivers license every time I vote for a long time. What else is in this new law?
I can't even buy cough syrup without I.D. ditto that some fertilizers etc etc etc. and they ask me nothing to vote?
They ask in the Detroit Burbs but not Detroit, IMHO that has to change.
Liberals, namely the Democrat Party, tell me I'm "disenfranchised" if I'm required to show my photo ID to vote!
What about my doctor's office, the drug store, the library, city hall and Macy's, aren't I being disenfranchised at those places as well?
Where do I go to sue all those places, not to mention the art gallery, the transit authority, the airport, the movie theater, etc.?
Where's Obama to help when I really need him?
Funny thing is...we have to show our ID at more places now BECAUSE of the illegals who are at the same time etting away with not showing theirs. Stinks.
What stops the fraudsters from getting multiple ID cards?
Don’t get me wrong, voter ID will stop 95-96% of fraud.
The punishment for getting caught should be 10 years solitary.
Personally, I think a universal background check should be required before voting. After all, when exercising your second amendment right you need to prove you are who you say you are and that is not an undue burden.
