At least every voter gets a free voter ID card. I mean, according to our resident election official County Resident, there wasn't any fraud that identification laws would have prevented, but this gives people warm fuzzies. That and people that couldn't afford IDs get free IDs to boot. I mean, isn't that we wanted, to give poor people and elderly people stuff they couldn't afford? What's a few million dollars when warm fuzzies are at stake?

The voter cards have always been free and everyone just recieved a new one after re-districting just a few short months ago.

I guess you did, miss the card that is because everyone in the entire state was issued a new card with redistricting. Pluse when you register to vote you alway recieve a card and there has never been a charge, it has always been sent as a courtesy.

Well it sounds to me like we are going to charge the taxpayer more money to be sure this voter fraud 'problem' is fixed once and for all:

"the executive order directs the State Board of Elections to send every Virginia voter a voter card, a valid form of ID under state law, before Election Day, so that every registered Virginia voter has a valid ID to present at the polls"

Now I'll have a backup, in case I lose my original.

I KNOW!! They have always been free! When you register, you get a free card! OK, at least something has been signed and we know what to expect. If there is a vigorous campaign to let voters know what to bring to the polls we will all be fine. I don't anticipate many, if any, provisional ballots to have to be filled out. I don't see how this is any different from what we required before, I'd have to look at my notes. See you at the polls!

A free new card to carry for one purpose, to vote. OK I'll buy that. I'll just put it in my wallet next to my last 2 voter ID cards. With no pictures we all know who we are.

My question is what's up? I thought the Repuglican party did not like REGULATIONS. "REGULATIONS are bad. REGULATIONS are ruining this Country". That has been a familiar cry for a while. Now we REGULATE voter ID cards and MANDATE everyone to produce them, or some other type of ID when we vote.

REGULATION, MANDATE, spend more money to make and mail cards. Can anyone figure this Repuglican puzzle out. And don't start out with etch-a-sketch, that is a real mind changer.

STOP THE WAR ON WOMEN!
DON'T VOTE FOR GEORGE MACACA.

Sweet, yeah; I don't remember ever getting one... so this is meaningless grandstanding?
I'm so glad that the taxes we pay can go towards something so important, I mean; who needs roads, police, teachers, or better yet... lower taxes???

Thanks again for explaining it to me.

I didn't realize what a colossal waste of resources this was.

What if I forget to bring it, can I fill out a provisional ballot?

Those darn fraudulent voters, they are making it so confusing.

Nothing like doing something you know you should not do and justifying it with a meaningless but look good gesture!

Thank you, Gov. Bob. My parents came from Hungary, LEGALLY, and their first and foremost goals were to find legal work, learn the language, become citizens and absolutely love the country that gave them freedom. Daddy was too old to get into WW II, but Mom was one of the first to join the WAC's after Pearl Harbor. Uncle served in the Navy and Auntie served as a Navy nurse on a hospital ship off the Korean coast during that war. Of course, I did my three in the US Army. All of that was in defense of the United States and The Constitution. Asking people to prove they deserve the right to vote ain't no thang.

Certainly even you can see the irony of your statement. I swore the same oath, but we did nothing to protect the constitution.

"I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations."

"Perhaps it is a universal truth that the loss of liberty at home is to be charged against provisions against danger, real or pretended from abroad."

James Madison
