Voter ID Requirments = Poll Tax?
I don’t hardly think so.
Someone seems to have this idea that those without ID are more likely to vote democrat and so this is a ploy by republicans to win elections. It might be true for all I know. I do know something else though, that to protect the integrity of our elections, people should have to prove they are who they say they are.
The states that have recently instituted this requirement are giving away state ID’s for free as well. I’m extremely confused as to why the race card is being played on this one. You need ID to work, to cash a check, to drive a car, to get into the movies, why the hell shouldn’t you need it to vote? Prior to these requirements anyone could walk up to a polling place, claim to be someone else and go in and vote on their behalf. They could even move on to another polling place and pull the same stunt.
So shut your mouth Jesse Jackson, you race baiting hate monger.
