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 don’t need your attitude thanks, I have one of my own!

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?

Many thanks to all of you for the education, information and giggles. I'm not a gang member either and I certainly don't want to get shot at. Was trying to help a friend figure out the unusual occurrence today - I don't usually see lots of daytime headlights either and it was just curiosity that generated the situation today. THANKS ALL! (Really like having this site to bounce questions off of...) sls

Regarding headlights on during the day,,,

As others have said, there is the law, then there are peeps like me who ALWAYS drive with headlights on. I want others to know that I am there,regardless of day or night.

Our Subaru and Hyandi have a setting that headlights on when the ignition is turned on and auto turns them off when ignition turned off.

Just feel safer running around the mountains with the headlights on regardless of conditions.

I believe the California law is that if you need to run your wipers than your lights must be on.

It's only a law (daytime) if are using your wipers, or if some safety issue has come from Cal Trans, or the CHP

Yeah i wouldn't do anything, I remember some years back gangs were doing that as an initiation, leave their lights on and shoot at anyone that flashes them, it was back in the 90s, certainly not saying that is the case and it's probably just coincidental...

Just wondered if there was a reason; a friend asked me to check with locals because they saw an unusual amount of headlights on this morning (old cars and new cars). Didn't realize it was the law to have them on during the day unless posted as such ... thanks for the info!

A lot of the newer cars headlights stay on all the time. Nothing going on that I've heard.
