    what exactly the "voter fraud" is that the Republicans are trying to stop.

    I go to the polls, I show my voter registration card, I vote, the pollworkers cross me off the list as having voted, and if somebody shows up later and says they're me and tries to vote... yeah, sorry, you already voted.

    I was told by the elections administration that the only reason voter ID is necessary (since our voter ID law got blocked by the DOJ) would be if I didn't have my voter registration card, I could tell them my name and THEN I would have to show my driver's license.

    Where's the hole in here?  If you're worried about "dead people" voting, well, that usually occurs well after all the living people have voted and requiring photo ID from all voters does absolutely nothing about it.
