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.


Someone who thinks logically provides a nice contrast to the real world.

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.

Obama is currently in his fifth year of campaigning and speechmaking, which is considerably easier than being president. All it takes is a good writer, a teleprompter, a few lies and the ability to cry “wolf” every month or so.

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?
