    What I find interesting is how so many can ignore common sense, and ditch the "cut goverment", "reduce spending" " less redtape" platitudes when it fits there agenda, as well as mess with the Constitution and our rights as citizens when it suits them.

    You might not "wanna" be a sheep... but you sound just like one... you are using all the same left wing talking points against id that I see here and elsewhere. Original thought it is not... may not be a sheep, more like braying...

    And yet that was all I needed to aquire a Passport. The photo came after.

    My point is, if fraud was rampant, and if it was causing elections to be tainited, an arguemant could be made for tighter controls. But that arguemant cannot, in any form or fashion be made. And the cost to cover this is not warrented nor is there a need.

    If you present a ss card or bank statement with your name and address, that should be sufficent. And if you are defrauding the election officials, you will be caught. Of course no one had been yet, at least not in our state, but why worry about a small detail like that.


    Like most of your stuff Bon: just can't agree with the need for gov issued photo ID to exercise the most important right we have.

    We live in a rural county which mails out absentee ballots to those who sign up for them. We have voted absentee for over 10 years because they kept closing voting places. Fraud would be real easy. The ballot arrives in the mail, you fill it out, you sign your signature, and mail it in. I don't think our clerk spends time comparing last year's signature to this year's signature. Most signatures are illegible anyway. Just look at the signatures on checks.

    To get an absentee ballot, all you have to do is request one from the county. You can phone them and they will mail you a post card to fill out and request an absentee ballot. This is what we did more than 10 years ago to set up automatic mailings of our absentee ballots. This is a recreation area with lots of summer vacation homes and few permanents. All anyone would have to do is file a name and an address and request an absentee ballot be mailed to the vacation house address. Watch the mail box, fill out the ballot and mail it back. Our county and the county wherein the real voter resides most of the year would never compare voting lists.

    If my rural county is like this, I am sure this could happen in other rural counties across the nation.

    Bill, they are facts not talking points. The estimated of cost to my state to provide photo ID's is 3+ mil. This is to solve a problem that does not exist, when we are still in a budget crisis. The largest segment of the population w/o current photo ID are the elderly, and they are the ones who will be impacted the most.

    How can there be that many old people with no photo ID? I'm 54. I have many senior citizen relatives. They all have photo id. What gives? Is there a whole population of old people just in your state that does not have ID... sounds like bs to me.

    I can see no other real reason to push this except to deter some voters, mainly minority/lower income/urban voters all who tend to be more liberal. If nothing else this is a bad PR move on the part of conservatives.

    Voter ID is alive and doing well in Indiana. We are also in very good shape fiscally. I guess it takes a republican Governor and republican controlled congress to make this happen.
