Holder to brief black pastors on campaign 2012
I do not understand the problem with having to show proper ID when voting, everywhere in life you have to have proper ID for things so why not something as important as voting? Their whole argument is that it discriminates against the poor, minorities and the elderly since they don't have proper ID. So why not simply help them get the proper ID? What is so hard about that? It seems more difficult to challenge every state on this rather than simply fix the problem, they argue that $20 is too much for some to pay, easy fix, give it to them for free.
In Virginia we have always had to show proper ID, I always assumed it was the same everywhere. It makes since to make sure nobody votes in your place or votes twice or worse yet voter fraud where "dead people" are voting.
What is your opinion?
