    what do you mean people don’t have the transportation to get voter I.D.’s? In South Carolina, for example, a van can come to your house to take your picture and get you and I.D. I’m sure that all states have something similar.
    And where is the connection between Koch and voter I.D. laws? do you have proof that Koch is the reason that these laws were passed? A lot of people wanted them passed to stop what little fraud there is (dead people voting, dogs voting etc).
    The nice thing about democracy is that if people in those states don’t like the new I.D. laws then they can replace their elected officials and vote new ones in. But chances are that people in those states actually LIKE voter ID laws and don’t want these laws to be repealed. If they do want them repealed then we will find out in a few years.

      I’m sure people can count on your assurances that other states have similar programs to South Carolina’s program. By the way, in Rock Hill, S.C. they have the vans that can pick you up, but it’s the ONLY public transportation that goes to the ID-issuing office and you need 48 hours notice to get the pick up. Not to mention if you don’t want to take a day off work and want to get the ID on Saturday, there are only 6 offices out of the 68 total that are open.

      This is all information from the “The Challenge of Obtaining Voter Identification” released by the Brennan Center for Justice.

      Also, how can you vote someone out when you dislike their voter I.D. position if you’ve been disenfranchised by those laws?

      Yes, most people seem to like voter ID laws, but they don’t think the IDs should be difficult to get.
