if everybody is required to show ID, there is nothing racist about it.

voter fraud is a real issue. it can only be dealt with using IDs.

Clinton is showing just how brain dead he is by bringing up this topic. we show IDs for so many things in our lives, and he is saying this quote, "threatens to roll back half a century of progress."????

cocaine using, marijuana smoking, brain dead, stupid, liberal.

using Clinton's train of thought, we shouldn't be required to show ID for traveling, alcohol, auto license, etc....doing so "threatens to roll back half a century of progress."

my god! that is almost as bad as Pelosi saying quote, "sign the bill, you can read it later." OR Obama saying quote, "you don't enforce bad laws, you fix them."

these liberals are so brain dead, it's scary.

did you hear the one about the liberal saying that we shouldn't worry about the budget because we can just print more money?

they really believe this is the way things should be handled. no joke. ask any liberal.

This is what is required by Alabama:

Valid ID at the Polls

A voter can use any of the following forms of photo ID at the polls starting June 3, 2014:

Valid Driver's License
Valid Non-driver ID
Valid Alabama Photo Voter ID
Valid State Issued ID (Alabama or any other state)
Valid Federal Issued ID
Valid US Passport
Valid Employee ID from Federal Government, State of Alabama, County Government, Municipality, Board, Authority, or other entity of this state
Valid student or employee ID from a college or university in the State of Alabama (including postgraduate technical or professional schools)
Valid Military ID
Valid Tribal ID

If a voter does not have one of the approved forms of photo ID as stated in the law, then he or she may receive a free Alabama photo voter ID from various locations including the Secretary of State's Office, local county board of registrars' offices, and a mobile location to be determined by the Secretary of State's Office.

Can't be any easier than that and still prevent voter fraud, can it?

we need to IDs to prevent voter fraud. granted, the list of IDs allowed for voting is too long.

IDs are the ONLY way to control the problem.

if not, then, what do you suggest? accepting one's word?

For all the IDs issued by Alabama, a birth certificate is required. Same for most of the federally issued IDs so I don't think the list is too long. Granted, the line has to be drawn somewhere but insuring all those eligible to vote are able to will eliminate lawsuits.
