The problem with voter fraud is with electronic voting machines not voter IDs.

The company that makes most of these machines also makes ATMs. You always get a paper record of your transactions from ATMs so if there is a problem the paper trail can be audited. Why did they neglect to have this feature in our voting machines? So they could make big bucks by selling powers that be vote flipping, rigging programs in the machines source code. When news media exit polls disagree with voting machines' totals we need to have a paper trail to audit.

Servants of the people legislators must insist on a paper trail. Servants of tyranny try to make it sounds like the voters commit frauds.

It sure seems in the best interest of the nation to enforce the laws that protect our Nation.

When going to vote, getting the voter registration ard is part of teh "ordeal", what's the big deal to affirm legitimacy by getting the photo id as well.

Cut the crap, lets protect our nation by weeding out the non eligable to vote.

Let's ensure only Americans vote!

Anyone who is of age to vote has a picture ID, or they are here illegally.
And that is exactly what the democrats fear, that their pet illegals can no longer keep them in office on promises of jobs, welfare, health care and food stamps.
Picture ID or no el votie.

If the democrats truly cared about the voting rights of citizens; the democrats would stop wasting so much money and time fighting against Voter ID and instead use the money to set up a fund to assist needy AMERICAN CITIZENS in obtaining proper ID.
