Whatever! If they want to bank, rent a movie, take a flight, etc. they'll be able to do so now. This is just more bull chit! "New York University School of Law?" That's questionable!

It seems "The Brennan Center for Justice at the New York University School of Law" (there's an unbiased source - snerk!) didn't vet their facts very well:
Kobach dismisses the Brennan Center's concerns. He said the state has conducted several local elections since January with more than 68,000 voters participating. Kobach said only 84 voters failed to present a photo ID, most of which either forgot or chose not to bring one. Those voters were allowed to cast a provisional ballot.

"We have actual statistics in Kansas and the figures tell a different story," Kobach said Friday.

Even when it's free they have excuses why they can't get one. Are there no local churches that can get buses to get them to the offices where they can obtain their FREE ID's? Don't they have friends or family members who can help them out?? If one wants something bad enough, one can usually find a way to get it.

Exactly! I lives in a small town and everything was centrally located. In other words, if you could get to the grocery store, you could also get to the County Seat, the Post Office, etc. You could do all your legal transactions in that place. These are people making a mountain out of a molehill; nothing more.
