North Carolina governor signs extensive Voter ID law
The Washington Post ^ | August 12, 2013 | Aaron Blake,

Posted on 08/12/2013 12:50:32 PM PDT by yoe

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) on Monday signed into law one of the nation’s most wide-ranging Voter ID laws.

The move is likely to touch off a major court battle over voting rights, and the Justice Department is weighing a challenge to the new law.

The measure requires voters to present government-issued photo identification at the polls and shortens the early voting period from 17 to 10 days. It will also end pre-registration for 16- and 17-year-old voters who will be 18 on Election Day and eliminates same-day voter registration.

Democrats and minority groups have been fighting against the changes, arguing that they represent an effort to suppress the minority vote and the youth vote, along with reducing Democrats’ advantage in early voting.

The youth vote is usually a 'gang' vote or a bought vote...'youts' have no skin in the game...yet. Citizens who pay the taxes, any taxes, should vote....all else pretty much votes as groupies not as intelligent voters...just my team is better than your team...a rotten way to keep electing Snake Oil politicians who make a career of conning the system for self enrichment. I am all for raising the age of voters, plus since this is America and Americans speak English...why do we have states with ballots in two languages? Translations often lead to misunderstandings and it is easy to get a non English speaking citizen to vote for things he/she don't understand and is bad for them and their country.

Good for North Carolina....

I had to show an ID today to get bloodwork done. There was a 90 year old lady there as well; she showed her ID.

What???? Just because you can’t buy nail polish remover without ID shouldn’t mean you need ID to vote!

When did early voting become a "right"?!? I don't even remember it existing before the early 1990's. You could vote absentee, but you had to make a trip to the courthouse and provide a valid excuse. None of this opening polling booths and allowing votes three weeks before the election crap existed...

Excellant, same day registration and voting, early voting and absentee voting are all sources of election and voter fraud. I do believe 17 yos should be able to register if they are to turn 18 prior to the next scheduled elevtion.

Now where is the Bill to Allow Fracking in NC to reverse their blunder from a couple of years ago, and when will the Gov sign that?

Completely correct post...and I don't mean politically correct.

Would those same people who seem unable/unwilling to get a photo ID to vote have the same problem if they won a free vacation and were told they needed that same ID to board the plane? Doubtful.

The same law/ID you need to vote should be the same law you need to buy a gun.

That’s ridiculous.

Have you spoken with a representative sample of men today? Not just the younger ones, but the guys in their 50s, 60s and 70s are just as bad. Loads of liberals wanting the government to support them or their kids or their drug of choice.

There is no quick fix and there may not even be _a_ fix. Things have just deteriorated past the *fix it* stage.

I’m not sure how serious Coulter is about her claim, but voter demographics from the 2012 election clearly show that if only men had voted, Romney would have won.

http://www.ropercenter.uconn.edu/elections/how_groups_voted/voted_12.html

Here’s some more demographics that show if only women had been allowed to vote, both Gore and Kerry would have won. They also show that there have been exceptions. For example, if only women had been allowed to vote in 1960, Nixon would have won, Kennedy would have lost.

Every woman I know voted for Romney and that includes a couple who finally admitted they had voted for zer0 the 1st time.

Even some men I know who are business owners and should have voted GOP hang on to their “cool” image (in their own minds)and defend their worst enemy. They are a minority, I admit. But I hear way more whining about *fairness*, especially as regards income (!) from men, than from women.

Anecdote, not data.

Curious how widespread voter fraud became apparent shortly after that. Hmm... do you think there is connection....? /s

This is obviously unacceptable. How can liberals survive without fraud?
