If you don't have an ID in the fist place and your older and infirm, you can't exactly just get in your car and drive to your closest DMV which is hours away and get yourself a voter ID, now can you?

quickdraw: Nabb1: Do you ever get the feeling that if Sarah Silverman had been born a male the apex of her (well, his) comedy career would have been "funniest guy in the fraternity house"?

No. If she was male she would have a prime time talk show.


At least a stand-up career as popular as Ron White. And largely the same material.

Hell, they even have color-based names.

tenpoundsofcheese: what a racist fark she is.

Voter ID laws are targeting black people...ohhh, the race card.

How about 0bama's economic policies are targeting black people since they have a much higher unemployment rate than average?

The best part is the one that none of our "Fark Independent" friends will acknowledge.

As she said, the only voter fraud going on is the voter ID laws.

Then how exactly are you going to just get in your car and drive to the closest polling place which is hours away?

I have no issue with the concept of requiring voter ID, it's the f*cktardedly backwards way the Repugs are trying to implement it that suck.

In some places, the only office to obtain the ID is located in some out-of-the-way place that can only be accessed by car (i.e., no public transportation) and is opened from noon to 3PM every other Wednesday and 1PM to 2:30PM every third Thursday of the month. And there's one person manning the whole thing who walks like Tim Conway's character. Basically, the GOP is trying to set up an extra step to enable one to vote and then make it virtually impossible to complete that extra step.

1. It takes all day. Combining the DMV long-line experience with the necessary paperwork (they've made it harder) GETTING to the nearest DMV (DMVs in democrat districts keep getting closed down) and probably having to go more than once when you turn out to not have the necessary documentation? It's at least a day wasted, that gets some people fired.

2. It's expensive. Traveling to another county plus missing a day's work plus having to pay for the license and paperwork to GET the license (It's only "free" if you know the game) plus day-care is going to run around the cost of a week worth of food.

3. It doesn't matter. This legislation has been proven beyond reasonable doubt to be aimed at suppressing votes to manipulate elections. The law was invented as a form of election fraud, that is reason enough to call it a bad law.

Not to mention if you can't put your hands on your original birth certificate, it can take weeks and weeks, and $$, to get one sent to you.

I know of at least one liquor store that rejects state ID cards, saying that they have to see a driver's license and nothing else will do. Presumably some of the blue-haired senile ladies working the polling places might say the same thing; I have had one of them tell me that registering to vote at the DMV wasn't really registering.

Then their was that poor lady who couldn't get a state-issued ID because, even though she had her original birth certificate, she couldn't find all three of her marriage certificates spanning seventy-some years.

why is it an issue now? there's no voter fraud. why are people actively trying to change the law?

A lot of older people aren't well documented. My own grandmother was born at home and never had a social security number. She was already married when the government started issuing them, and only working men needed to get them back then.

- "But Mr Dent, the laws for getting an ID have been available in the local planning office for the last 2 months."
- "Oh yes, well as soon as I heard I went straight round to see them, yesterday afternoon. You hadn't exactly gone out of your way to call attention to them, had you? I mean, like actually telling anybody or anything."
- "But the laws were on display ..."
- "On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them."
- "That's the display department."
- "With a flashlight."
- "Ah, well the lights had probably gone."
- "So had the stairs."
- "But look, you found the notice didn't you?"
- "Yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying 'Beware of the Leopard'."

To be fair, stealing your phone and sending porn to your parents does sound like something Sarah Silverman might do, you know, as a sort of performance art or something.

/seriously...I'm asking.
//agree with 90% of what she said.

here's what I don't like about them.

1. the timing. they made these laws in some of the states with very little time for those people who need to get them to do so. or even be notified that they would need them.

2. they made them hard to obtain because they want several pieces of identification to get them. I've been driving in Ga for 40 yrs and I had to go get a raised seal copy of my birth certificate (I had lost my original and all I had was a photocopy of the hospital birth record) and I had to have 2 utility bills with my name and address on them (I went paperless and do all my stuff online years ago) so I had to change that and then wait on the bills and my social security card. some people don't have their utilities in their name but in another family member's name and that would make it even tougher on them. and some states even try to charge for the i.d.s even going as far as firing employees at the DMV who voluntarily tell the citizens that they're free if they're just for voting.

3. there's no voter fraud going on that these measures would stop. it's a lie. it's a solution to nothing because it's not a problem.



if they had allowed enough time and made the state make sure that everyone had one before implementing the statute then I'd have no real problem with it. but no they implemented it and didn't even aloow time for the courts to review it much less allow everyone to get the new i.d. Our statute just went into affect in July. only those who needed to renew their license between july and elections day would have run into the new laws. the state itself never sent out any notification to me that I might not be able to vote using my old license,.


#2 was my problem... no birth certificate (lost years ago, never needed it since), paperless bills, expired driver's license. After my divorce, I discovered that the bus was a hell of a lot cheaper than maintenance/fuel/insurance/taxes on a car, so I never bothered to renew my license.

I needed an ID to fill a prescription, and ended up having to ask a friend to pick it up for me. Strangely, they didn't care that his name wasn't on the prescription, just that he had a valid ID.

I have a state ID now. In the end, I got three copies of my birth certificate. The first was faxed (denied, no raised seal). I requested another, and received a simple photocopy in the mail despite stating that it needed a raised seal. The third was finally correct, received more than a month after I made the initial request. It took more than 2 months to get physical copies of my bills... The first change in billing method for my electric bill "didn't go through", and then in the next month my neighbor's drunken party guests once again ran over my mailbox (happens 2 or 3 times a year).

/and I don't even need an ID to vote.

It's more than a little alarming that lots of old folks still believe in the GOP, even after they touched the "third rail." OTOH, since they're already old and any changes won't affect them, the old "got mine, fark you" mentality comes into play. This allows them to vote the way FOX and am radio tells them while still retaining the idea that it's in their best interests.
