    I understand that; however owning a gun is also a right and yet you need an ID to exercise that right. I don't know anyone except the very far right wing people that want to do away with the that.

    Leaving and entering this country is also a right for citizens. I don't see anyone saying we should stop checking for ID with respect to this either.

    I support laws such as these as long as the state has a way to easily get a free ID for poor, disabled or older people.

    This isn't 1808; its 2008.

      to ensure ballot integrity. The ONLY reason this law exists is to keep progressives from voting.

      If that's the outcome you want, then go ahead and keep supporting these laws.

      But if you want free and fair elections, there are other ways that don't disenfranchise progressive voting blocs to accomplish that.
