Is there a Voter IP law?

And my husband just registered in person yesterday!

because more people from South Carolina having a voice in politics is exactly what this country needs

The people from Charleston*, Columbia, and Myrtle Beach seem to be reasonable. It's the outer lying areas that have the derpfest.

Sorry submitter, everyone should have a voice in politics.
 
2012-10-03 11:28:29 AM
Of course you need a valid driver's license or photo ID to register online.

It would be nice if people who are too ignorant to understand the issues would sit the elections out.

The areas just over the border from Charlotte (i.e. Fort Mill, Tega Cay, even some of Rock Hill) are also slowly moving away from the Derp. It'll probably be awhile before it is noticeable.

Which I admit I didn't read I just scrolled to the bottom and clicked I agree because otherwise I can't proceed.

Most of it, yes. Charlotte has become a melting pot of northerners (NY, OH, PA) who have been moving into the area. Myself included. This has caused a bit of spillover from that into SC, shifting the area towards the blue side.

It is. Tega Cay barely passed liquor by the drink because of the "think of the children" crowd.

It's a different part of the state. While he's talking about the northern part of SC, Bob Jones is in the "upstate" area (Greenville-Spartanburg-Anderson).

And while Greenville has Bob Jones, the area also has other colleges and viewpoints that help to balance out things.

If other states want their citizens to vote, they're welcome to compete.

I don't know. My dad moved to Myrtle Beach last year. I don't know how he voted when he was here in Jersey, but he sure didn't rant about how Obama is going to do away with elections and make himself King by 2016 at the dinner table here.
 
2012-10-03 01:02:58 PM
SC isn't likely to vote for Obama, so making it easier to register is okay.

Why is it when I want to move to those places, I'm viewed with hostility, but you're perfectly welcome?
 
2012-10-03 01:03:46 PM
Hey racist submitter. Just because SC has twice as many African Americans as the Avg US state does not mean they should not have a voice in politics. Take your racism somewhere else.
 
2012-10-03 01:04:05 PM
What an ugly sentiment. Everyone should have a say in politics, even if I don't agree with them or their views are just out there.

You're an asshole, subs.

I worked for a company based in the Rock Hill a couple of years ago. My boss was the king of the derpistanis. He blamed Obama when his state taxes went up.

This is a good thing - for now.
But give it a few years and our state legislature and governor will look at the overlap between democratic voters and the people least likely to have internet access at home. Then we'll see money saving measures being proposed to change local election office hours from their current ones to only being open from 10-11 AM every 2nd Tuesday after the first full moon of the month.

I have a neutral accent and know when to keep my mouth shut about things. Then again, most of Charlotte is not from Charlotte, so that helps too.

Then they don't realize that one community organizer with an iPad or something can sign up scads of voters who are not internet savvy or connected.

What's really going on is that you have to have a driver's license or DMV id to register online - which keeps out the riffraff.

you can also register online in california.

Yes, but, they also get to have a voice.

You've been able to register online in Oregon for quite some time now. I will never have to show ID either.
 
2012-10-03 01:33:24 PM
The higher the turnout anywhere in the country, the better the Democrats do. This is a good thing, IMHO.

What's worse is that 365,000 people voted for Alvin Greene in SC. In this instance, I would be eager to claim voter fraud If I were a Democrat from SC.

I have been to South Carolina once in my life.

The gift shops there have postcards that joke about sending kudzu to the North as retaliation for the Civil War War of Northern Aggression.

I was at a conference and hanging out with someone from Boston (I think) as we went around and looked at the shops (and took pictures of the Confederate flag that was then hanging at the state capitol building). We were both creeped out.

This CSB was merely to point out that a state with a whole bunch of voters that are still mad about losing the Civil War is confusing and depressing.

*raises hand*
I considered a unemployed, socially challenged, and most likely retarted horndog to be less of a danger than Jim DeMint. A lesser of two evils situation.

Never, I hope. The day we vote online will be the day the powers that be start simply making up the results completely. I'd like to stick with ALL paper ballots. So what if it takes a day or two to get the results... they're important enough to wait for.
