The State Supreme Court should have the say on this one. It is their State.

Yes and the Wisconsin Supreme Court also follows the U.S. Constitution, too. Remember Indiana ID law has already went through Federal Court and Pass.

Liberal groups ranging from the ACLU to the NAACP oppose voter-ID laws, claiming that voter fraud is almost nonexistent and that an ID requirement would amount to voter suppression. It’s certainly true that in-person voter fraud — the type of fraud most easily fought with voter-ID laws — isn’t the whole picture. Voter-ID laws must be combined with tighter controls on absentee ballots, the tool of choice of fraudsters. But filmmaker James O’Keefe demonstrated just last month how easy — and almost impossible to detect — voter impersonation can be: A white 22-year-old assistant of O’Keefe’s was offered the Washington, D.C., primary ballot of Attorney General Eric Holder, the most visible opponent of ID laws.

Just this week in Fort Worth, Texas, a Democratic precinct chairwoman was indicted on charges of arranging an illegal vote. Hazel Woodard James has been charged with conspiring with her non-registered son to have him vote in place of his father. The only reason the crime was detected was that the father showed up later in the day to vote at the same precinct. Most fraudsters are smart enough to have their accomplices cast votes in the names of dead people on the voter rolls, who are highly unlikely to appear and complain that someone else voted in their place.

I am ok with ID to vote. As long as everyone has to have same ID and everyone has to show ID. Thing is the GOP don't want that they want non-whites and poor people to jump thru hoops and have special ID like jews did in 1930,s Germany. SOUNDFAMILIAR WHAT GOP WANTS?

The 2005 American University's bipartisan commission on Federal Election Reform-co- chaired by former President Jimmy Carter and former Secretary Of State James Baker-wrote:The electoral system cannot inspire public confidence if no safeguards exist to deter or detect fraud or to confirm the identity of voters. Photo I'D's currently are needed to board a plane,enter federal buildings,and cashing a check. Voting is equally important. Voter ID laws do not reduce turnout. A study by The University Of Missouri in 2008 found that voter turnout in Indiana's first election after it's voter ID law went into effect actually increased. A similar study by New York University's The Brennan Center concluded that "concerns about voter ID laws affecting turnout are much ado about nothing,finding that such laws had no effect on turnout even across racial/socio- economic strata.

Nobody votes in Mexico without a special voter ID card....

But once they get to the USA they are too stupid to get a ID according to liberals

Second point is that the vast majority of the older are conservative so this would help liberals win elections if your claim was true

But you also claimed that a police officer can't follow a burglary suspect and shoot the suspect after he attacks the officer and we all know that is a lie

not one case of documented voter fraud (and there are very very few of them nationwide.) would have been prevented by photo id at the poll. not one.

why do you want to waste so many millions of dollars for nothing?

they were not busted for having people vote under false names, idiot.

i know it is embarrassing that you have been lied to so on this issue and are not intelligent enough to have figured it out on your own, but you have been duped, pal, man up and admit it. then look at who lied to you and re-examine everything they have ever told you.

Justice John Paul Stevens of the U.S. Supreme court wrote in Crawford v.Marion County Election Board that " flagrant examples " of voter fraud have been documented throughout our nations history by respected historians and journalists which demonstrate that not only is the risk of voter fraud real but that it could affect the outcome of a close election. Why do you have such a problem with safeguards against voter fraud? How would this cost millions of dollars?
