You misunderstood the question . . .
You are poor, elderly, live in a rural area: How do you get there?
In 2008 I drove 18 people to the polls. My last riders were two elderly people in the Allentown PA area. The woman was from Ireland and the man was part of the Great Migration in the at 1930's.
Unfortunately - I can't quit my job to take the tail end of the Great Migration to register - so how do they get there?
Has sufficient time been given for say - an elderly woman from Ireland to reach out to the Republic to get a copy of her BC?
Could you explain - where is this rampant illegal voting happening? The two cases I'm most familiar with we're done by a little boy named James O'Keefe who lives 15 minutes down the road from me in Princeton. This guy also made fake videos about a group called ACORN.
To date - I don't believe he has been arrested.
The other rampant fraud I'm aware of has taken place in Florida - but in that case the Florida State Government is not ejecting people from the polls - they are bypassing that and telling people they aren't Americans . . . But so far as I know the state of Florida does not have the authority of the Secretary of State's office.
I also have come to learn that they have not resourced the various US Consulates/Embassy around the world.
In my case a state employee in Florida would look at my place of birth and if they are smart say: Not only is she not an American - but the country she claims to have been born in doesn't even exist (a twenty year old who didn't receive a stellar education in Florida probably has no idea that here was once a West and an East Germany).
Now I just got married and went through a bunch of paper work to change my name. I will be pissed if I have to go trough a bunch of bullshit to get a state voting ID card when I just got an American passport with my new name. I shouldn't have to ever declare my citizenship to a campaign volunteer. My citizenship is Federal Domain.
So if we go down this path - it needs to be removed from the hands of states and put in the hands of the Fed. We should not ever trust states with our civil liberties or rights.
When black people in America had those two things administered by the state - they were NOT given their rights under the Constitution.
I don't understand how someone posting in this group could not understand why black Americans would not trust a State Government with ensuring they receive due process and equal protection under the law?
Voter ID should only be the domain of the Fed . . . Never ever eveeeeer the domain of a State.
