73% Think Photo ID Requirement Before Voting Does Not Discriminate

Rasmussen Reports, April 16, 2012

Despite his insistence that voter fraud is not a serious problem, Attorney General Eric Holder was embarrassed last week when a video surfaced of someone illegally obtaining a ballot to vote under Holder’s name in his home precinct in Washington, D.C. Most voters consider voter fraud a problem in America today and continue to overwhelmingly support laws requiring people to show photo identification before being allowed to vote.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 64% of Likely U.S. Voters rate voter fraud at least a somewhat serious problem in the United States today, and just 24% disagree. {snip}

(I, for one, am surprised that 24% disagree with this)

Even if someone does not have a PHOTO ID, they most likely have some other sort of ID. I have never understood the ability just to walk in and say my name and get my ballot. Heck, when I was in high school and worked in a library we required ID to get a library card!

my mom used to work the polls. I remember one year it was at the elementary school. The way it was set up it was local and everyone knew everyone so it would be hard for a stranger to walk in and get a ballot. We ended up with a bunch of those rotten pencils. I think it should go beyond a photo ID and to sign up you should prove you are eligable to be voting. Maybe even do like they did in Iraq and when done voting you had a purple thumb. Not only would everyone know you voted you could only vote once.
I could also see a very basic IQ test.

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

Requirement to vote should be US government or State issued photo ID and the voter not receiving a government subsidy for a continuous one year period prior to the voting date!

My moms name remained on the registered voters list long after she had died. One year I noticed that someone had signed on her line. When I asked about it, saying that she was dead, the pollster said "someone must have signed on the wrong line". I said "funny...they signed her name" They just shrugged and went about their business.

City of Big Bear Lake is here from Voter Fraud. A lot of business owners in the city area were registered at their Business address and BBL PO boxes in the 70s. It really never made much of a difference till the separation of the city from county all the ballots were the same through the whole Valley. People would move out of BBL out to BBC and still get mail in town. Why would you bother changing your voter address when the ballots were all the same back then.

And to those that will write in a candidate, all you are doing is voting for Barry to go 4 more years.

I know this is off the subject but I do think people entering the country, even if it's just to visit should be fingerprinted and photographed and stored in a database. This would prevent people from coming in with a fake passport (unless you do it the very first time you come to America but then you'd have to consistently use the same fake name every time you visit). It would be a convenience for visitors if their country has the same system in place because if they would only need a passport the first time they visit America. The main reason? Make it more difficult for terrorists.

A friend of mine brought up a good point: It would make visitors skittish because they might feel that it's big-brother-esque but the convenience aspect of it could be pointed out. Also the fact that it's a security measure might make people more comfortable with it. The TSA is already getting away with so much, like making people take off their shoes (Muslims already take off their shoes when they are indoors so they're used to it! 8^))

I think I'll vote for Turk 182 this year.

Well I guess I'll just sit here and blow up then, shall I?If Mr Spock is left brained, then why does he play an instrument?

Sorry that didn't work out for you. But until Summer you might try the Palm Springs tram. You can do the same thing riding up in a rotating car and see what the other side of San Gorgonio looks like. I hear there is good food at the top and you can play in the snow if you like

Thank you guys so much about the chair lift rules and lunch at the top at Snow Summit. My husband and I didn't know the rules since we have only ridden the chair lift in the summer months. Did NOT know it was running half speed. You are all so helpful with this question. Makes sense now. We usually only come up Spring - Fall so not bring skiers we had no idea of any of this stuff. Thanks again.

Debora, to touch on what AR said, the conditional use permit with the forest service a. won't allow it and 2, the lift is running at full speed, we slow it to about half speed during the summer for guests to easily get on & off the chair. Additionally you would need proper footwear to be up walking around on the snow, getting off at the top can be a steep, sheet of ice, not easy to walk on. And last thing we need is people on the slopes hiking around in their flip flops getting run over by skiers & snowboarders. Many safety concerns...

Deborah it is a safety issue in winter plus they would have to bring the lift speed to almost a dead stop for foot traffic. They don't even like having the lift personell come down that way.
