SCOTUS has already ruled Voter ID is constitutional, the only court cases will be at the state level. .



Yeah and that is the problem already constitutional, but the individual states are going to try and get out of it. Or am I wrong on that?

Sure I did Eric I just used my statement about someone at a local bank, it holds the same amt. of water.
Richard like I had said before Pa. did it fairly right but not all states did since it's a state by state thing some have had it for years & I had even thought that Pa. had. I have always shown ID when I registered & they accepted many different types.

Granted you did, I see he says she says, so I understand the holding water part. I know what I was told though.


But thanks for the tip on the bank I plan on withdrawing my money now.

The opponents of these laws at least here in PA are fighting it at the state level. They lost the case a few weeks back and it's currently on appeal to the State Supreme Court. I'm sure that appeal will be decided before the election.

http://www.goerie.com/article/20120901/ ... high-court

Challengers seeking to block the new voter ID law argued in a filing with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Thursday that a lower court decision applied the wrong legal standards in assessing the potential harm of the requirement.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania and other opponents of the law requiring photo identification at the polls are appealing the decision of a Commonwealth Court judge that the requirement should go forward for the Nov. 6 general election. They had argued that many voters lack acceptable identification and that some would be unable to acquire the documents in time. But Judge Robert Simpson ruled that obtaining and presenting identification is not an unconstitutional burden and allowed the law to proceed.



......As the suit proceeds in state court, the Pennsylvania law faces additional scrutiny in a review by the U.S. Department of Justice for discrimination against minorities. On Thursday, a federal court struck down a Texas voter ID law on the grounds that it discriminates against low-income blacks and Hispanics.



The reporter has it wrong, again Texas falls under the Voting Rights Act. In the few Southern states that fall under this the DOJ can block laws affecting voting, PA is under no such restrictions. The DOJ blocked the legislation and it was actually Texas that took the DOJ to court.

You need an I.D. for EVERYTHING today. Think about it. The only reason dems fight so hard against this is because THEY ARE THE ONES BENEFITING FROM IT! A 3 year old child could figure that one out. It's blatantly obvious.

You, are the guy, always using the word "brown acid" must be a flashback from yer hippie days. a 3 yr.old still out smarts you.
