    The ID laws are just a way to suppress votes - period.

    You can register to vote in CA with a utility bill.

    It was good to see though that Ohio now has an independent commission to draw the districts.

    Since we have no national ID, the only ID most folks have is a drivers license. If you live in rural America, you need a car so you have a license. If you live in a city, you do not need a car and likely don't have a drivers license. See how easy it is to identify the targets of these voter ID laws? Now take a guess which race lives in cities and not in rural Murcia.

    Mr. God,

    Because the only reason you need an ID is to drive, right?

    See how silly your post looks in context?

From now until the midterms they should be as diligent as Trump and his supporter are at driving home that one focused message. This is what Republican's do when they're given power EVERY SINGLE TIME.
    They are panicking on the demographic changes and undoing of their gerrymandering. They know that pretty much the only way they can maintain power is to CHEAT.

    If you don't vote over a 6 year period, you don't care.
    And you know that to be a fact ... HOW exactly?

    Maybe they lacked transportation - Maybe they were in the hospital - Maybe they moved and then moved back. - Maybe all manner of shit.

    Robert - You know and I both know what is going on here. Voter suppression and particularly of the poor and vulnerable.

    Additionally, once you give these idiots an INCH ... They WILL take a mile and abuse the ruling for further voter suppression.

    You need a Real ID nowadays to even enter a courthouse or airport. We are having that issue here in NH since they refused to go along with the Real ID program and now its elective. So people get called into jury duty or get a court date and cant get in without ridiculous searching. It would be entirely stupid to not get one nowadays. They can really screw you nowadays without one. My son couldnt even take his SAT without one.

    I do not agree. Purging and deleting people after 3 years of not voting is not the same. Eberyone has to clean house at times. If you have been notified you need to respond. Leaving people on forever is not feasable.

    I dont know about that, many states are actually shrinking and have youth flight. I believe they claim by 2025 over 30 states will have populations over 50 and mostly white. Not true nationally, but electorally it is.

    Agree, if you dont respond, you either dont care about voting or you moved away and get removed.
