The student ID only let's people know who you are. It doesn't give you the right to vote. If you're not on the rolls, it doesn't matter what type of ID you have. The reason they don't want to except student IDs for identification purposes is because students tend to vote Democratic, and we wouldn't want that, now would we.

If the states were given the ok to clean up their rolls, I don't see why student ID's couldn't then be used....if you are not on the voting list, then you don't vote, whether you have an ID or not....that way the student doesn't have a chance to vote in 2 different places, their home and their college home that way a student ID could then be used to simply match name to face. I changed my DL, etc....to where I was going to college so that I didn't have that problem...but also, these students need to set it up to have an absentee ballot sent to them if they do not want to change their address....

The last sentence caught me. If we all had to show a photo ID to vote, how would a mailed in absentee ballot work?

I was speaking of the posters response, as the laws are right now....I assume that that will be a question for a long time to come. I was simply stating what students needed to do for elections as the laws state now. I had many friends that absentee voting while they were in college, and had no problems....but yeah, that will be something that has to be looked at, and I'm sure that there will be ideas as to how to take care of those issues....I don't know honestly, I don't know that showing ID to vote will ever be put in place....but that doesn't mean that I don't think everyone should carry some form of photo id....which is really my only stand on this.

COLUMBUS — Voter advocates on Saturday criticized an order by Ohio’s elections chief dealing with the casting of provisional ballots, saying it increases the likelihood that votes could be wrongly rejected.

The advocates, including lawyers for unions that previously sued over provisional ballots, said the order by Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted late Friday wrongly puts the burden of recording the form of ID used on a provisional ballot on voters, not poll workers.

“This increases the statistical likelihood of some inaccuracy on the form,” leading to the chance of those votes being rejected, Cleveland attorney Subodh Chandra said Saturday.

Husted now is ordering county elections boards to reject provisional ballots when ID information on a particular part of the ballot form is incomplete, contrary to a court decision on provisional ballots a week ago and contrary to statements made by attorneys for Husted at an Oct. 24 court hearing, Chandra and other attorneys said in a federal court motion late Friday.

Husted for the past 2 months seems to try every possible way to stop people from voting(trying to cut down on early voting, holding many issues in red tape for as long as he can before it's resolved). All that being said at least Ohio is not as bad as Florida for trying to reduce the rolls

Sickening.

Does anyone think Democrats could get away with doing something like this to likely Republican voters?

An oldie but a goody

Paul Weyrich, "father" of the right-wing movement and co-founder of the Heritage Foundation, Moral Majority and various other groups tells his flock that he doesn't want people to vote. He complains that fellow Christians have "Goo-Goo Syndrome": Good Government. Classic clip from 1980. This guy still gives weekly strategy sessions to Republicans nowadays.

Roxanne Rubin, a registered Republican from Henderson, Nev., was arrested Friday on a felony charge of attempting to vote twice in the same election.

FBI agents took Rubin into custody as she arrived for work at the Riviera hotel-casino, according to the Associated Press. Rubin had roused suspicion on Oct. 29, after casting a vote at her precinct in Henderson, and then allegedly attempting to vote at a different polling site in Las Vegas later that day. Election workers at the second location ran her name through a database, which showed that she had already voted. When confronted by officials, Rubin reportedly claimed that their database was incorrect, and that she had not yet voted. She was ultimately prevented from casting the second vote.

A complaint was subsequently filed with Nevada's Elections Integrity Task Force, which carried out the investigation.

Nevada Secretary of State Ross Miller said that the arrest is proof that the state is serious about cracking down on attempts to tamper with the vote.

"As we've said and demonstrated in the past, we take all elections complaints very seriously and investigate them thoroughly," she said. "Second, this demonstrates the integrity of the system. Someone thought that by going to two different locations they'd be able to cast two ballots. The system immediately caught that, the task force responded and an arrest was made."

Miller told the Associated Press that the task force is currently investigating another alleged incident of someone trying to vote twice.
How funny is it that it was a Republican who got busted for doing what the Republicans were trying to prevent?!?!

Apparently she was trying to prove how "easy" it was to commit in person voter fraud. She got her answer.

And as far as I can tell her getting busted had nothing to do with whether or not she had an ID.

Exactly. This gives more credence to the idea that voter id laws were a solution to a rather nonexistent problem.

Even the legislators here in Pennsylvania that wrote the ID law themselves have said there was no record of ANY instances of voter fraud in PA. for at least the last ten years, if at all. They were supposedly looking at it as a "preventative " measure. ( )
Who are they trying to kld?

I can't say that I have liked everything the UN has ever done either, but If they prevent another World War from breaking out, I'll be able to deal with my frustrations.

My point was that those who are upset about the observers seem to be under the impression that this is something new and was only being done to help Obama win.

Well, I was talking about registration. I do not believe you should be able to use a student ID to register to vote. Now as far as identifying yourself at the polling place, that might be different.

Supreme Court Deals Blow to Voting Rights Act

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000..._largeHeadline

Quote:
The Supreme Court ended the federal government's aggressive supervision of ballot procedures in states that historically suppressed minority votes, ruling Tuesday that Jim Crow-era discrimination no longer justified requiring selected states to obtain Washington's approval before changing their election practices.
A good decision. But, for pure entertainment purposes, head over to the Huffington Post and read the comments on the news story there. Page after page of foaming-at-the-mouth vitriol!

I was reading Mediaite and Newsbusters' stories about the MSNBC on-air personalities losing their minds over this. Just shows that even supposedly trustworthy people like Chuck Todd are just as bitter partisans as anyone else.

It doesn't make much sense.

They drop the voting right protections for minorities during a time when black voting rights are blatantly under attack?

Forget Chuck Todds bias, he's just a pundit. What about the Supreme freaking Court being partisan???
