• Voter ID is supported by large majorities of Americans.  In fact, polls show it is supported by nearly every demographic subset: whites, blacks, Hispanics, Republicans and Democrats.  All support voter ID by majority numbers.  According to polling data the only demographic that opposes Voter Id is white liberals.

    You can see a manifestation of this disparity on the editorial pages of American newspapers.  Editorial pages are frequent critics because, you guessed it, most of them are run by white liberals. The disparity in support between the white liberals running editorial pages and the rest of America frequently manifests in letters to the editor on the same editorial page.

    Here’s the latest example from the Fond du Lac Reporter’s editorial page:

    Another headline about voter ID. Don’t try to tell me that 300,000 people in Wisconsin won’t be able to vote. Does this same number not buy cigarettes, alcohol, over-the-counter drugs, etc? All require an ID.

    I had to show an ID this summer when I paid my granddaughter’s book bill at the University of Wisconsin-Fond du Lac campus as I used a debit card.

    I’m sure the money being spent on this issue could be used elsewhere, maybe education which these groups constantly cry we’re not giving enough money. I have no respect for these groups involved in keeping the voter ID law out of voting. They must like voter fraud.

  • “What’s wrong with some reasonable — non-discriminatory, may it please the court — measures meant to encourage turnout chiefly by those who exert themselves when turning out? What is the matter with some minimal formality, such as producing on demand a photo that verifies identity? The Texas photo ID law rebuked by an Obama-appointed federal judge as “an unconstitutional poll tax” permits the tendering of ID in various forms, including a citizenship certificate, a military ID card, and a concealed handgun license. That hardly strikes me (though I am not a federal judge) as troublesome or vexatious.”

  • Add to the long list of reason vote by mail is a bad idea:

    “In a conference in Sacramento today, UC Davis researcher Mindy Romero will present her latest data showing that 2.9 percent of the vote-by-mail ballots cast in the June primary went uncounted. That amounts to 91,000 ballots. In the 2012 election, 1 percent of the mailed-in ballots went uncounted. That equated to 69,000 ballots.”
