Trump: Voter ID must play 'very strong
part' in deal on election security

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 8/13/2019 10:29:12 PM

President Trump on Tuesday said Congress should not consider any "final agreement" on election security that does not include provisions mandating voters present identification while casting ballots. “No debate on Election Security should go forward without first agreeing that Voter ID (Identification) must play a very strong part in any final agreement. Without Voter ID, it is all so meaningless!” Trump tweeted Tuesday. (Tweet) Trump has long touted unfounded claims that he only lost the 2016 popular vote by 3 million ballots because of “millions of people who voted illegally.”

I am quite satisfied with the methods in Oklahoma. You show your ID and voter registration card. They find your name in the book for your party. You sign by your printed name. They hand you a paper ballot. You go to a booth and mark your ballot with the felt tip pen. When finished, you go to the ballot box and insert your paper ballot. Easy peasy, and there is a paper trail. I believe voting is not a "right" but a duty of citizenship. One should be responsible to make sure your voter registration is correct to your current address...at least 30 days before the election...and there should not be extended days to "vote early." It is a duty, a sacred duty, and besides you can take time off work in need be to vote on election day.

Same way we do it in Indiana except we don't have to carry voter reg. The clerks have a roll and your id must match address on the voter list. paper ballot, felt tip pen and picture id.

Let the cries of "racism" begin. I've never understood why we have to spend so much time and money on something as basic as voting. If you want to vote, no one will stop you as long as you're legally permitted to do so.

Without California in the mix Trump would have had the popular vote. However, we are a democratic republic not a pure democracy. Thank God for that. Otherwise, we would be Vensula on a much larger scale.

Here in Florida, we have to show photo ID plus a voters registration card, sign our name and then vote with a paper ballot. MUCH better than the People's Republik of Vermontistan where no ID of any sort was required to vote and any Tom, Dick or Harry could wander in and vote for either Tom, Dick or Harry, depending on what precinct they were in!!

Most of the California GOP stayed home and did not vote. Last I looked, there were at least 5mil GOP voters who did not bother to come to the polls because they knew their vote would not count. PLUS - many vote absentee. Do they even bother to count those anymore?

The article states "The president went on to retweet a post claiming without evidence that certain areas in California, a reliably blue state, have more registered voters than adults." Uh, so the Hill is unaware of the lawsuit that the County of Los Angeles lost (the largest county in the US and larger than 11 states in population) that showed 121% of the county was registered to vote? Come on, how much effort does it take to find some truth???

Michigan drivers licenses have a magnetic strip on the back with card information. When you vote, while certain other pieces of ID are acceptable, you hand your DL to the election official who 'reads' the strip with a swipe, checks it against a computer record that shows whether or not you are registered or have voted or was sent an absentee ballot. If all is OK, you are issued a paper ballot. All good. Except I see a big push on getting absentee ballots going... which lessens the load at polling places but means the ballots, and the filling out of the ballots, takes places ... somewhere else.

The Democrat reply: But, but, but, that would prevent the dead from voting. The grave yards have our most consistent voters. At least non-citizens who registered to vote when they obtained their drivers licensees because of Motor-Voter will be able to vote. This will make problems for those who vote early and often in different precincts. And, how will this affect our "vote harvesting" operations? You deplorable Republicans are trying to steal the election!!!

In Kentucky, you show your ID and they find your name in the book for your precinct. You sign the book and they give you a paper ballot. You fill it out and put it in the scanner. Done. I used to live in a precinct that was mostly black. Everyone had an ID and no one complained.

This will get more interesting and more contentious as we get closer to the 2020 election. The left has always contended that voter ID disenfranchised people of color...Leftist Translation: "People of color are too stupid to get a photo ID to vote". This time around Trump has voters of color "Woke" and they will question why the democrats don't want to ensure the integrity of the vote.

A new scientific breakthrough could increase the odds that Hillary Clinton, 71, could enter the Democratic primary in an effort to unite the party behind a tried and tested (albeit twice-failed) candidate in 2020. Clinton, whose unsuccessful 2016 campaign was plagued by challenges related to likability, balance, mobility, health scares, corruption, incompetence, and hubris, will be thrilled to learn that researchers at Keio University in Japan have developed a piece of technology that could mitigate at least one of those factors in the event she decides to run again.
