The states of Florida, New Hampshire, Michigan, and Hawaii, did have voter ID restrictions in place, up to and including photo id. However, provisions were made to allow those voters without such photo ID, to be eligible to cast their votes.

... which means photo ID wasn't required.

PS: Every state in the union has restrictions on voting...

Doesn't it still stand that Obama did not win a state, that required photo id to be eligible to vote?

Do let me know when you come up with something you won't move after we prove you wrong.

PS: The way the election works here in the USA is: all fifty states are considered. States that require photo ID aren't worth extra points.

The score was 332 for the winner to the 206 your draft dodger got.

But the 206 was 200 more than that joke Perry would have gotten.

What about the states that Romney won that do not require photo ID?

Does he give them back?

When do we recount these votes?

What does that have to do with the question that you are dancing around?

I believe I went back as far as the original statement by "Lee". he stated incorrectly the first part of his comment, but is correct on the second part of it. Several of you guys jumped all over his shi% for it. He (Lee) later corrected his statement, and since then, several of you still will not acknowledge that Obama did not win a state that required photo id to be eligible to vote in the 2012 general election. The goal posts did not move. You just won't man up and admit that someone other than yourselves can be in the right. The fact is that the election process is flawed, needs fixing, with the end result being one man, one vote, no more, no less. Anything less, we all lose.

Willard lost.

Watch the inauguration and see which candidate gets sworn in...

Maybe then you will stop counting votes and move on.

Did Obama win in any state that required each voter to provide a photo id in order to cast his ballot?

Do we have problems regarding the integrity of our voter eliginility process?
