Nevada secretary of state (D) to propose voter ID law

Source: Associated Press

Democratic Secretary of State Ross Miller says he’ll sponsor a bill in the upcoming Legislature to establish a photo identification requirement to vote in Nevada.

Speaking to reporters Tuesday, Miller says his proposal would require photo ID of registered voters be included in polling books kept by county election officials. Workers would then check the photos on file when someone signs in to vote.

Poll workers would take photos of anyone who lacks a photo ID to be included in the records.

18. What is your specific criticism of this?

It sounds like an interesting way to short-circuit the GOP's attempts to disenfranchise voters.

3. Looks like a compromise bill, maybe not a bad idea

You wouldn't need a photo ID to vote, but if you didn't have one, they'd take a picture of you on Election Day. Don't really see the problem with having my picture taken, and then the local pukes can't complain about Teh Minoritiez stealing elections.

4. I think it's very convoluted and makes no sense.

They are going to keep photo of your ID on file? Aren't there enough identity fraud already?

6. They take your picture.

If the picture at the polling place doesn't look like you when you go to vote, they ask questions.

It "solves" the issues the GOP are claiming. In doing so, it stops them from disenfranchising those who cannot obtain a photo ID.

5. Having read the article I can say this is a good way of getting around the GOP Photo-ID nonsense

It addresses the problem they allege without disenfranchising voters.

16. I agree. There is a purpose for this

This idea takes away a GOP hidden agenda, disenfranchises no one, and costs virtually nothing.

Doing nothing would certainly be more optimal. Unfortunately, the GOP is going to squawk about imagined voter fraud in order to push policies that will disenfranchise a great number of people and cost a great deal.

This idea seems like an innocuous alternative to a GOP power play.

11. itwouldn't necessarily cost a fortune.

8. I prefer a Driver's license or state issued ID card.

Obviously license are issued by the highway agency. ID cards can be issued by local police departments to make it possible for the elderly to conveniently get them.

10. this isn't about requiring a voter to carry an ID.

 

their photo identification would essentially be stored with the voter roll.

9. they do something like this at my dog's vet.

 

they take a picture of every animal patient(one time only) and the thumbnail picture appears on all printed statements.

it seems like a much better idea than what the repubs are always suggesting- that the burden be put upon a would-be voter to obtain an ID first.

13. Nevadans vote early and at the grocery store --how will that be affected by this?

are the two even compatible?

15. It shouldn't affect us at all

They either cordon off a section of the grocery store or use a trailer; at the mall I vote at, I cast my ballot about the same place that Santa and the Easter Bunny sit at other times of the year. The only difference is that their books would have my picture in addition to copious amounts of personal information. Of they didn't have my picture, they could just take a digital photo on the spot. Nevada really has the best elections I've ever seen.

17. No it doesn't.

It does nothing of the kind.

It's a pretty clever solution to a GOP attempt to disenfranchise. Re read the article.
