One obvious problem with our nation is we are so willing to take up causes spewed by politicians. They all have agendas. They push these agendas by adding spin in the form of race, gender and class discrimination.
Without voter ID laws, what is going to prevent a person from "vote early, vote often"?

William, what you are doing is adding more politics to the issue. The history of this party and that party just adds nothing but static. There is nothing in this country that will prohibit a US citizen from voting, except if you are a convict, a Disney character or if you're dead... thanks to the 15th, 19th, and 26th amendments. If the absolute law of the land cannot bar you from voting, what is there to worry?
With that said, If the IDs they used in previous elections are not expired, then they do not have a problem. If they are expired, the state will provide transportation and issue those people new ones. Case closed.

And why is it that democrats are more opposed to this than republicans are? Are voters that are for democrats too lazy or limp that they cannot pick up the phone? I'm sure there are lazy republican voters, they are aren't complaining?

I don't get it... this is what I understand: You have an ID, you get to vote. If you don't have an ID or your current ID is expired, the state will send someone to pick you up to go get one.
No where did I read that you are banned from voting. How is this the argument when its not even the case?
