What's the big deal about showing photo ID at the polls? Most people have a driver's license.

Not enough deceased people so they need to be able to vote for those not voting. An age old Democrats phase "vote early, vote often."

We need the voter eligibility laws to be at the highest standard possible.

I'm working in Germany and my wife has to show a picture ID to vote, it's perfectly normal here in Europe.

The Federal government should be stopping voter fraud, not enabling it.

Anyone that doesn't want everyone to show ID to vote probably benefits from not having to. This is our right as an American to vote. Then we should all as Americans demand that their be no voter fraud. We are told that our one vote could make the difference. Then we should demand that only those that can vote do as only one vote that is fraud is one to many.

Lots of poor, illiterate people in Mississippi.

I bet there aren't any illiterate people in Germany. Everyone is educated.

USA has more than enough stupid people.:-(

Heaven forbid! We wouldn't want to inconvenience any minorities by making them produce a *gasp* government issued photo ID.

The deal is that folks that are ineligible to vote would NEVER vote for a republican, who typically wants to cut them off welfare or deports them or put them in jail for selling crack.

So where does that put us?

It puts us in a place where a highly politicized Justice Department is using its power to try and assure continued political power for the democrat party by suing states that want to clamp down on voter fraud and illegal aliens.

Frankly I believe Eric Holder should be put in prison over this. The audacity of suggesting that requiring a fawking valid ID [that is free for poor people] and every American sounds like a real attempt to subvert The Constitution he is sworn to defend, much like his Mexican drug cartel assault rifle supply program.

AG Eric Holder is the biggest racist the Justice Department has ever seen. He is also the most corrupt and unethical.

Not supporting, the integrity of voters, and elections, especially from the office of the AG, is nothing short or treason.
