(Reuters) - Michigan Governor Rick Snyder on Tuesday vetoed a measure to broaden Michigan's photo identification law for voting, the first Republican governor to veto such a plan during a national wave of ID laws enacted by states in the last two years.
Michigan has an existing voter ID law that is somewhat flexible, permitting a voter to sign an affidavit and vote a regular ballot if they do not have photographic identification with them.
Snyder vetoed a proposal from the Republican-led legislature requiring a photo ID for absentee voting.
Snyder also vetoed proposals that would require voters to affirm their U.S. citizenship before receiving ballots and to require voter registration groups to undergo training by the secretary of state or local clerks.
His party knows that fewer people voting means a better chance for republicons it get elected.
The republicon party wants to destroy democracy through dirty tricks legislation. They are anti American terrorists. A few in the party know they have gone too far and are trying to control these T-bagging terrorists.
