There are 2 comments on the Daily Kos story from Aug 1, 2012, titled Voter ID -- What Would Martin Luther King Do?. In it, Daily Kos reports that:

Try going to a bank, convenience store, pawn shop, buy a home, rent an apartment, buy a car, cash a check, enter a federal building, etcetera. You will have to show some form of picture identification. Having a picture ID for voting should be no different. For a small fee, everyone can go to their local court house and get a pictuer ID. They issue them everyday. These people that say it will disenfranchise voters are full of crap. It's just another way for someone to get their 15 minutes of fame by trying to make a mountain out of a mole hill. Some people do not vote because they are afraid they will be asked to prove who they are and do not have proper ID. With proper ID, more people would probably come out to vote. It's also another way for politicians to help get themselves re-elected and raise more money for their war chest and lobbyist to line their pockets. All most politicians want to do is tell you what's wrong with everything or everyone and who to blame it on without trying to find a solution to correct what is really wrong. The mind set of people that are still stuck in the 60's is amazing. They need to quit living in the past and start looking to the future. This country is on a one way course straight to hell. Wake up America...
