Though I'm not.

As far as I'm concerned, any legitimate reason for NOT having a Voter ID Law can be overcome with free ID's.

Everyone should have access to a gov't provided picture ID.
Everyone should be required to show a gov't provided picture ID at certain times... of which voting is one of them.

What percentage of people who claim they can't get ID's drink alcohol? Ever?
How did they obtain said alcohol without a picture ID?
Certainly now that they are 40+ they aren't "carded"... but I bet a lot drank when they were younger.

How do these poor people access state provided housing or food stamps? I am assuming anyone too poor to pay for an ID is on the public dole... no? How do we know they're not on the dole multiple times? if they have no ID they could be collecting benefits under 5 different names with no ID for each name.

They idea that you can vote or have access to any gov't provided free shit without an ID is ludicrous.

If voter ID laws are unnecessary, thus wasteful, in small localities, then should voter ID laws be applied everywhere?

That you think the right to vote is "gov't provided free shit" should be a warning sign about how you view the role of government,

That you're not interested in the other side of the debate is disturbing.

That you equate voting rights with purchasing a beer is odd.

That you think the government should have a database of every citizen verges on fascism.

I don't think they should be applied everywhere. I think that people should have the choice everywhere to democratically decide if they want voter ID or not, depending on each's circumstances

It's not disturbing for one important reason. Voter ID is common sense

It's nice to see that you feel comfortable responding without actually reading my post.

Thanks for that. :)
