I realize that we live in a post-bipartisan world, but I don’t think it’s a coincidence that when Voter ID laws come up, they are always introduced passed by Republican-controlled state houses at the objections of the Democratic minorities.
Does this really mean that Democrats are all for election fraud? (I joke but there are some who actually believe this.)
When one hears about election fraud in the news, it is almost always having to do with voter registration issues (which is not the same thing as voter fraud). The few times where corruption is found, it has to do with local candidates buying votes, something which Voter ID laws do not address.
When you ask proponents for evidence of rampant voter fraud which Voter ID laws would address, they admit that they have none.
Supporters of Voter ID laws like to say “you need an ID to _____________” and list one of a handful of things, but voting is not like those things. It’s a fundamental right, unlike anything else.
