What.

Obviously does not understand how immigration law works.

Iit is illegal for a non-citizen to register to vote or to vote. It really is. Trust me, they know this.

Kansas? *checks article* Yup.

I should not that my confusion is *on the existence* of this law. Not the challenge to it.

Do corporations have to prove citizenship status?

I meant the Kansas Secretary of State, not you.

/you'd think he would know better....

You shouldn't what?

No, and they also get to vote once for each shareholder.

Needlessly Complicated: Obviously does not understand how immigration law works.

It happens rarely, usually unintentionally, because of Motor Voter. A person who is otherwise here legally (read: green card) ticks one wrong box on a form, or fills out a section they shouldn't have and they're wrong.

"Mr. Ali, 68, who had owned a jewelry store in Tallahassee, got into trouble after a clerk at the motor vehicles office had him complete a registration form that he quickly filled out in line, unaware that it was reserved just for United States citizens." (See: "In 5-Year Effort, Scant Evidence of Voter Fraud", New York Times, April 2007)

is it any surprise that the GOP are copying the tactics of Soviet Russia, Nazi Germany, and current muslim countries like Iran?

Fark the Republicans and fark all the red states that keep putting these draconian voting laws into effect. It's basically reclaiming Jim Crow, only under an alias and with the obvious racist words redacted.

Kris Kobach is a lot like a peach. A rancid, moldy, festering peach that continually spews radioactive sludge all over the entire state.

Republicans see voters as the enemy.

Two-tiered voting rights. Some really are more equal than others.

~~The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, elected by the people thereof, for six years; and each Senator shall have one vote. The electors in each State shall have the qualifications requisite for electors of the most numerous branch of the State legislatures.


Looks to me like they got it backwards.   The constitution leaves it up to the states (with some restrictions) to determine who can vote.

Wait. TFA says you can prove citizenship by text.

Wouldn't that backfire on them since all those Obamaphones are flooding the country?
 
2013-11-22 02:35:28 PM  
Because we ALL know that people are hiking hundreds of miles through the Arizona/California/New Mexico/Texas desert just so that they can then hitch a ride over to Kansas and vote for President.

It's almost like state requirements are different than Federal requirements.
