34. Good points on how Sinema and Manchin can be persuaded.

Vote suppression can hurt them. Now that you mention it, it's a blinking neon sign. Of course. It can cause them to lost their next election.

A voter ID card for everyone is fine, but is it really necessary? I've done voter reg many times on campaigns and one of the things that new registrants have to produce to the register is a valid state ID or passport which has their signature on it. Then they nave to fill our the registration form and sign it with a signature that matches.

Then when they show up to vote that signature is on file and poll worker pulls it up and has the voter sign their name and the signatures have to match. In other words, they've already been ID'd when they registered to vote.

The ID requirement is sort of a red herring argument that fool a lot of people who don't know about voter registration.
