One key thing I've not heard enough of in the immigration debate is the role of Motor Voter in registering non citizen voters. We hear a lot about requiring E-Verify for employment but you would think more importantly we'd need E-Verify for voting. We know that non citizen voters are being registered via the Motor Voter law and are voting. It doesn't appear to be huge numbers but even a few hundred could be enough to swing elections and truthfully before we can offer a "path to citizenship" shouldn't we make sure non-citizens won't be voting?

I don't get it - I have to have a picture ID to buy stuff at Sam's. As does any illegal who wants to buy stuff at Sam's.

But, to vote in a U.S. election...

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is also stating that voter ID laws are "unnecessary, expensive, and intrusive" and should not be supported.

So is requiring the same for buying a gun, but libs do not care about that. They also hope most people won't put two and two together and ask why Dems oppose photo ID for voters when they are pushing for it to be required for a gun purchase. The "media" will be sure and keep these two items as separate as possible.

If background checks on gun buyers are a good idea, why not background checks on voters?

Democrats and quisling rino republicans make me want to puke!

No immigration reform of the type being currently advocated and no voting unless you have ID.

If you are not a US citizen, you do not get to vote in our elections, period.

Voter ID Laws: Why Democrats Are Scared

Why would they be scared when they know the GOP is trying to rescue them with amnesty?

To read dem concerns about something being too expensive, or that military personnel might have difficulty voting (or getting their votes counted) is laughable.

Since the Democrats are supporting drivers licenses for illegal immigrants in Maryland, Illinois, and Minnesota...

Is this true? Someone who is breaking the law and is here illegally can apply and get a drivers license?!? This country is lost.

After the Gang of Thugs rams amnesty through Congress, it won’t matter. For every fraudulent vote caught, there will be 10 newly minted voters to show ID when voting Democrat.

How much does 'early' voting cost?

A photo ID requirement didn’t help much in Florida, stuffing ballot boxes in blue counties and making red counties wait in 5 hour lines on voting day fixed the vote just fine for these scum.

As a side note to requiring a valid ID to vote, the "right" not to show a valid ID in order to vote not a constitutionally protected right, please consider the following.

Note that the Constitution likewise does not prohibit the states from prohibiting citizens who cannot demonstrate a basic knowledge of the Constitution, as the Founding States had intended for it to be understood, from voting. So just as states appropriately require candidate drivers to pass a written exam in order to drive on public roads, I think that it is likewise appropriate that candidate voters should be required to pass a basic constitutonal knowledge test before being allowed to vote. This would help to prevent citizens who don't know things like Congress's Section 8, Article I-limited powers from voting for candidates for federal office who wrongly promise citizens federal government entitlement programs which cannot be justified under Section 8.

I find it interesting that 3rd world countries and emerging democracies/republics have this thing all figured out already with dipping your fingers in the purple dye that can’t wash off easily.

At this point I’d be willing to go that route.

While the law seems to be reasonable and fair, Democrats are decrying it as unfair to senior citizens, the poor, and minorities illegal aliens, liberals attempting to vote multiple times and union reps bused in from other States.

Edited for actual truth.

I bought a ten pack of Claritan D today and had to show my drivers license. Two weeks ago, I voted and didn’t have to show anything.

Wouldn't it be great if you had to pass the same background check to vote as you do to buy a gun. In fact you should get a voter ID card with your carry permit. Conversely, no carry permit no voter ID.

Wouldn't that requirement make wooden liberal heads explode.

Voter “disenfranchisement” occurs when your legitimate legally cast vote is canceled by an illegitimate illegal vote cast at least once in any given election.
