Well, those kinds of laws aren't needed--all states already repuire voders to have identification. That's one little fact the proponents of these laws don't mention. And there is no evidence--anywhere, in any state--that there is a problem with voter fraud. A lot of talk---but no EVIDENCE. However--there's nothing wrong with the idea in principle, even though it isn't's unnecessary. But--these laws, time after time, have been written in a way that makes it more difficult for minorities, the poor, and senior citizens to vote. Also, they've been written in such a way as to require people to pay fo rthe ID in order to vote--in effect, a poll tax (and don't claim that's not really what it is--under the law, any fee that must be paid in order to vote is a poll tax and is prohibited). Those things are UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Period. That's why laws written that way are being challenged--and thrown out by the courts. It'sa funny thing--the people pushing these laws are the anti-immigrant types wo keep screaming about "enforcing the law"--yet what they are doing is trying to BREAK the law--the highest law in the laand. So much for their fake "respect for the law."
