    Another one on elections integrity not voted on. It states that if you don’t have a valid ID then they’ll issue one for free. Yet no votes. And that’s aimed at helping the poor. No Democratic support on this one?

    I foresee voter fraud becoming a problem. An example of this is recently in Virginia it was found that 10 dead people were registered to vote. If voters were forced to show an ID card, what happened in Virginia would not be able to happen anywhere else because the people manning the polls would know exactly who was voting.

    Better yet, quit requiring people show ID when they come to vote. The instances of voters trying to cast their votes numerous places is rare.
