Verifying who the legal voters in a state are is not a good thing?

Texas’  state Senator Troy Fraser’s  “… bill requires voters to show a valid government-issued photo ID — such as a Texas driver’s license, Department of Public Safety identification card, state concealed handgun license, U.S. military ID or U.S. passport — to vote in elections.”.  …  It also apparently has other special provisions for some already on the rolls, for example those who are over the age of 65.

On the surface it looks like a good thing, so why not allow the state governments to verify who their legal voters are?

  1. Quite simply, those who are against voter eligibility verification are willing to turn away from the very real problem of voter fraud. Here in Maine, town clerks are so inundated with absentee ballots that they are sometimes unable to follow proper verification procedures – leaving the door open for fraudulent ballots to be submitted. Legislation has been approved to do away with same-day registration (requiring registration at least two days prior to the election) and that has met with howls of protest from the MCLU and the other usual suspects. A proposal was voted down that would have allowed non-citizens to vote in the Portland, ME local elections. Voter fraud is growing and the Democrats are by far the main recipients of this illegal largess.

    • Well put… Regarding the mention that the electorate voted down the allowing of non-citizens to vote in Portland, ME local elections, I believe San Francisco, CA (yes, San Fran) allows non citizens to vote in some or all local elections… Wonder where else non citizens in the country are allowed to vote.

  2. But, but, if they do that then dead people can’t vote for democrats!

    What a novel idea!

  3. Ah…here lies the irony. The folks that don’t want this bill, think it is a bad thing because it is a good thing. They slowly erode he system that has been created to protect their interests, and then demand change because the system no longer works.

    Pardon the analogy, but they are the virus that kills its host.
