Supreme Court Upholds Voter ID Law as the 2016 Presidential Election Gets Underway, says AMAC

Deniers dismiss the need for tighter voting procedures that ‘limit’ their candidates’ chances

WASHINGTON, DC, Mar 27 – Campaigning for the 2016 Presidential Election got underway this week when Senator Ted Cruz threw his hat in the ring, becoming the first official candidate in the race.

Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Scott Walker and other Republican hopefuls are likely to make their intentions official soon.  And Democrat Hillary Clinton, who is so far unchallenged in her party, is said to be planning an announcement in April.

“But, it was perhaps the Supreme Court that stole the election headlines when it decided to let Wisconsin’s photo ID law stand,” according to Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens.

“It signaled rational support for tighter voting procedures that aim to reduce ballot box fraud.  There are plenty of ‘deniers’ who have a variety of reasons for wanting anyone who shows up to be able to vote—chief among their motives, to get their candidates into office,” he said.

It’s not the first time that Court has backed anti-fraud election measures.  In 2008 the Supreme Court upheld Indiana’s voter ID law.  John Paul Stevens was on the bench at that time and he noted that “flagrant examples” of voter scams “have been documented throughout our nation’s history by respected historians and journalists.”  He concluded that: “not only is the risk of voter fraud real, but it could affect the outcome of a close election.”

Weber said that the prevention of voter fraud should be a non-partisan objective, but “liberals tend to dismiss the existence of the crime, despite the statistical and anecdotal evidence that it distorts election outcomes—usually in favor of liberal candidates.  It is said that Chicago’s Richard Daley was a master of phantom voting in his day and that he used so-called ‘zombies’ to stand in for deceased citizens at polling places in order to get his candidates into office.”

That’s why, Weber added, it is expected that new challenges will emerge to voter ID laws “that do nothing more than require the same kind of documentation needed to buy liquor or get into a government building.”

There is NO LOGICAL reasoning for NOT REQUIRING voter ID in ALL Government offices elections. Many things require ID, check cashing, buying tobacco products, buying a firearm, obtaining a drivers’ license, etc. VOTING, is our MOST IMPORTANT PRIVILEGE AND DUTY, ANY AMERICAN does. It should take precedence over ANY OTHER requirement of CITIZEN ID, otherwise, voter fraud will run rampant in the USA.

One should have to supply proof that they are a citizen in order to register to vote. Just signing a statement should not be sufficient. And one should have to prove that they are the person that registered in order to vote. I am a member of a fitness center that uses a finger print identification system for me to enter the gym. The technology is already there and is economically available. All that would be needed was a photo ID AND proof of citizenship (birth certificate or naturalization papers) to register. At registration the registrant’s finger print would be taken. Then at the polls the potential voter would only need to touch the fingerprint reader. Almost instantaneously it would indicate whether or not he was eligible. )Provisional ballots would be given to those the system couldn’t identify.) The system would operate much faster than the present method of a poll worker having to look up names. It’d be nearly fool proof.
The only downsides (or upside, depending upon your outlook) would be that online refistration, mail registration, etc. would be difficult, if not impossible, and if you liked voter fraud you’d lose.

I remember when a person had to be an American citizen to vote, no question about that…so over the years. just exactly what happened that it seemed to go “out the back door?” And who changed that??? I still firmly believe that only American citizens or naturalized citizens be eligible to vote, and yes, because of the confusion of things today, a valid, picture ID (such as a driver’s license and if necessary, a birth certificate accompanied with a the would-be voter’s ID) to avoid any and all confusion. A DL does not prove a person’s citizenship so a birth certificate would back it up. That should be the standard for registering to vote or to vote ( if already registered.) And bully to any and all politicians who would do anything to “buy” votes so they can get into office (even if they shouldn’t be in office!) This should make all US citizens more responsible in maintaining a copy of their birth certificate or to get one from the Registrar’s office in the city of their birth. Some might say this is beyond what it takes to register to vote but I say it’s a good way of keeping things under control. When one applies for a job, the would-be employer will most likely ask to see a birth certificate so why not have it handy anyway. Is that such a big deal?

I worked for over 30 years in the airline industry in passenger service and it was mandatory that when a passenger checked in for a flight, they had to provide a valid picture ID (normally a DL) for domestic flights and proof of citizenship document for international flights. If they could not provide a valid ID, they were denied completion of the check-in procedure. I worked at the ticket counter for many of those years, and we came across numerous fake ID’s that looked so real, that we had to “run” the ID numbers through the computer for validation and it was amazing what information came up! Especially with security so important these days, we could not take any chances and I think our govt. should do the same thing too, in the voting process, for fraudulent voting. And if people are screaming discrimination, too bad! The US has its rights to do things right and to stick to it. I don’t think that in other countries, unless a US citizen becomes a citizen of their country if they opt to live there, that they would be allowed to participate in their voting process. and I don’t think these countries would “give-in” to accommodate us “just to get more votes.”)
It’s time for America to stand up and get its back bone strong again and start doing things right for the citizens of this country instead of always trying to be “politically correct” to all of the other countries. We, the citizens are important and if we are lead by the right people, we can start to regain our ground again, starting with the voting process and if anyone does anything to “manipulate the system” to suit themselves or their political party, then they can expect to be arrested and tried in a court of law…it should be that important to all of us.
I have seen too many fake ID’s at the airport and I’m sure there are numerous more out on the streets today, issued by shady people making a fast buck, and those “innocent takers” now think they possess valid US DL’s or state-issued ID cards. Most of the information on those fake ID cards came from stolen DL’s. Most of the fake credit cards we came across were from stolen credit cards and if a person does not know what to look for or how to check for its validity, then these people get away with murder, if you will.
So let’s make the valid picture ID’s (either a DL or state-issued ID card or a US passport) a must and if necessary, accompanied with a valid birth certificate (either the original or a copy from the Registrar’s office in the city of their birth)….that should prove our US citizenship. I’m all for doing things right!!!! America deserves respect and God bless the USA!

What is so difficult about requiring a voter ID? I need a license to drive on public streets and highways. I am a Vet and I have to have a veterans ID card to be treated at any VA hospital or clinic. Why is this such a hardship on minorities as Obama and the Democratic tyranny claimed?

Why not make it simple? How about every one who wants to vote register to do so. Then prior to election, a voter card with your name on it will arrive in your mailbox. The card will also have a bar code, which when presented with a corresponding photo ID and scanned at any poll in the state (for state elections) and the country (for national elections) will allow you to cast your ballot. The polls shouild be open throughout a weekend, not on a tuesday which does place a burden on anyone with a job. So, on summation here, what am I advocating here? Let remove the old restrictions which make no sense and install some requirements which actually have some effectiveness and eliminate fraud. The bar code would be good for only one swipe and could be used in any location and the card would be retained at the polls to be counted against the electronic and/ or paper ballots to verify a correct count. Simple? you don’t have to be a lawyer to have common sense, but maybe a brain surgeon would make a nice compromise?

Lincoln Sorensen, good voting model but you neglected to discuss the registration phase. To register to vote in an election for candidates for Federal office one must present a drivers license and sign a federal form that states “Yes, I am really, really an American citizen”. The registrant does not have to produce any other document that proves citizenship status. The registrant does not even need to know a word of the English language.

This is where your suggestion that a voter card be sent to the voter. At least half a dozen states issue drivers licenses to known illegal aliens. These licenses lack any printing that would identify the license holder as being an illegal alien, because the Democrats say that it would be “discriminatory profiling” to do so.

The various spokespersons for states that issue drivers licenses to illegal aliens justify the practice by saying that it enables them to keep track of the illegal aliens. Don’t ask one of these spokespersons what they do with this knowledge, he or she will just look at you like you’re a trouble maker and ignore the question.

I have made suggestions to correct the loose registration problem further down on this discussion thread. The chances that the Democrats in Washington will allow any of this to be adopted is zero for obvious reasons.

Joe, I don’t know what state you reside in, but here in California I help register voters at community events, at church, and at the county fair. The form we use accepts either a driver license # or the last 4 digits of their social security #. We never ask for i.d. to register – but usually people pull out their licenses to write in the # rather than give away any of their ss#. They do sign that they are a citizen on the form. We have an excellent Registrar of Voters center here in my county, and they check the names and #s to make sure that the voter is legit. They also keep the voting rolls up-to-date. The registrar here has done such a good job he is now training other county registrars how to do a better and more efficient job.

We recently had a very close vote for a local election and a recount was requested. The challenger (a Democrat) withdrew before the end (to save money) as it was obvious that the original count was so accurate that even in such a close election they would not be able to find enough miscounts (among provisional ballots) to change the outcome.

In California you can also register online. That is one aspect that may be problematic – how can we prevent tampering with an online system?

Most people in my area now vote by mail. Most of the really busy or elderly folks use a vote by mail ballot every election. So you don’t need weekend or multiple days to voter in person. I still prefer to vote on election day but we have annoying electronic voting systems that make it tedious. Before casting the vote, you can go through your ballot and verify the tape is correct. In case the electronic transmission fails, they still have a paper backup.

Joe McHugh

concerned citizen, I’ll say it again, all one needs to register to vote in a vote cycle for Federal elections is a drivers license and to sign a federal form that he or she is really, really an American citizen. If California issues drivers licenses to known illegal aliens, those aliens only have to show the drivers license and sign that ridicules form. How does that stop illegal voting?

Worse yet, it is not a crime to commit fraud to register, it is only a crime to actually cast a fraudulent vote. This is a moot point because no one can legally ask a voter any questions, except to sign the voter registration log. In plain words, the American voting model is an outright joke.

If California has separate voting rules, the illegal alien can simply avoid voting for any state or county candidates and thumb his or her nose at any California officials who happen to be “checking”. By the way, how would anybody check a vote that is by definition a secret vote?

I reside in New York State and I have witnessed “citizens” voting who did not know a word of the English language. These people always had a “volunteer” helping them through the process.

But hey, who are we to “judge?”

Can you think of a better excuse than the faux-equality of the unequal for our current condition since our “Democratic” leaders and their “Republican” accomplices consistently sponsor cultural degradation and acceptance of evil (including current acceptance of primitive and insane cultures into the community of nuclear-weapons nations)? The recent domestic assaults upon our common values, our parental rights, our rationality, our economy, our police, our military, our citizenship, our freedom of speech, our freedom of religion, and our liberty are likely only a start… the majority electorate is now just beginning to harvest the fruits of their venality… I pity our innocent descendants!

I’m a firm believer in Voter ID’s. Ben Carson stated in his book “ONE NATION” that he has traveled throughout the world and the United States is the obly country he knows of that does not require “VOTER I.D.” He also made a very good point in his statement, “If Americans simply choose to vote for the person who has a D or an R by their name, we get what we deserve, which is what we have now.” Maybe it’s about time the voter needs to find out more about the candidate rather than just the party they are with! I’d also like to see our state do away with this early voting crap. If you can’t plann four years ahead to be at the polling place to vote on the designated date, you don’t get to vote….PERIOD, with a very few exceptions, specifically military personnel deployed elsewhere.

The Constitution did not/does not define”natural born citizen,” but has been accepted that children of a US parent are natural born US children.

Ivan, that is where people get the Constitution wrong. Just accepting the common usage as the norm.

The Law of Nations, see the Federalist papers, was the basis for the use of “natural born” in the Constitution. The Law of Nations required BOTH parents be citizens of whichever country AND that the child be born in the same country.

So, the common acceptance has allowed many to accept fallacies and think they are acting IAW the Constitution.

Ted Cruz is NOT eligible (although I so wish he were).

Some other words in the Constitution with meanings that are just accepted include: regulate, militia, establish, and equal.

Where will it end when we just keep accpting fallacies? Don’t answer, I know where. It will end with the destruction of the USA.

Francis, you may in fact be right, but in reading Vattel, there seems to be contradictions in that it’s the parents (both of them) in one case, but it’s the fathers citizenship in another.
Of course, in the 1700’s women were not in full receipt of citizenship. That should have changed once women were treated as equal in all rights with men.
If you are right in total, then Cruz is not eligible, and I would fear any move to amend the Constitution to make him eliguible with the nation’s state of affairs at this time.
The founders did use Law of Nations as well as Blackstone. Your sense of who prevailed in the founders situation may well be the right one. Thank you. I stand corrected.

The idea that a person has to be born in the USA to become President is a prime example of a fallacy. This would rule out children of military personnel who were not born here. I think most people understand that this would be a totally absurd idea. As long as either parent is a citizen, and as long as a person has lived in the country for 14 years, and is over the age of 35 he can run for President. Obama’s father was definitely not a citizen, nor did he ever claim to be. The case is closed on the matter.

All states need to have voter ID, especially since illegals are again flooding over the southern border.

It’s too bad Cruz has ‘declared’ as a candidate; he, being Canadian by birth with a Cuban father, is ineligible (and he knows it!) as are Jindal and Rubio. By declaring his candidacy, he gives legitimacy to the usurper currently squatting in the White House.

Even with nationwide voter ID, I’m afraid America as we know it is finished; we are no longer a nation of laws, but of men.

I lived in Alabama for 21 years before moving to Arizona. When I lived there the Democrat party continually screamed and hollered that blacks were being barred from voting. Why? Because according to the Democrats blacks didn’t know what polling place they were supposed to go to and there was not transportation provide for them to get there. Hmmm. I NEVER heard anything regarding any other race not knowing what polling place they were supposed to go to nor did I ever hear that they didn’t have transportation provided to get them there. And there was the really big fly in the ointment…a photo ID showing you were who you said you where before being permitted to vote. The Democrats harped that many blacks didn’t have a photo ID and that that should not be a requirement. Strange. I had to show a photo ID to do many things voting not withstanding. So how exactly did a lot of blacks especially carry on day to day business with no viable means of positive ID?? And before anyone jumps all over me as being racist, there were just as many other nationalities caught up this same dilemma but you never heard about them. Funny how that works.

In case anyone thinks this is a small potatoes issue, I’d like to remind people who may know about shenanigans in the 1960 presidential election involving Daley and Kennedy sr, that a much less known example was LBJs senate ‘win’ in the early fifties that propelled him to the big time. He knew that as a congressman the power he craved would be elusive, so jumping to the senate was essential. He ‘worked’ with the big shots in south Texas to secure all the votes there. This swayed a very close election in his favor. The rest is history. Vietnam, great society. Before anyone mentions the civil rights bills, I’ll remind that LBJ was dead set against all of them right up until the winds changed and then with R help overcame strident D opposition. Opposition to foolproof voter id makes no sense in the absence of ulterior motives. All that’s needed is a picture id, an official registry with signature and poll workers who take ten to twenty seconds to check.

If only Minnesota would be so brave to move forward with voter ID. Instead they have made up the financial hardship for the state to issue ID’s, when intact ID’s are required from cashing a check to buying tobacco products. Since the picture ID is required for so many activities in this society there would be no hardship. Try using your utility bill as ID when cashing a check or purchasing liquor or tobacco ……. the cashier looks at you like you are crazy but it is good enough to vote in Minnesota!

Maybe enough conservative concerned citizens need to get involved with their registrar of voters office and MAKE SURE their county does a legitimate and accurate job of certifying voters, and organizing the election, and counting the ballots. Couldn’t volunteers offer to check out voter rolls for deceased or imprisoned, etc. names and get the registrar to check then strike them from the lists in ADVANCE of the election? Couldn’t citizens also band together and monitor “problem precincts” in some non-intimidating way?

If you are a local business person, (for example, a local café owner) could you get permission to sit nearby and offer a free coupon for coffee and pie for every voter who voluntarily shows you their Sample Ballot mailing label (not their actual ballot) or I.D. before entering to vote? A list of registered voters at the precinct is public domain, so get a list. As the people show you their label or id, you cross out their name. If they refuse, you just mark a column that means there should be one voter you haven’t confirmed. At the end of the poll, you know how many people voted there. If the poll numbers (minus the absentee /mail ballots) are way out of alignment, contact the Registrar, or the local newspaper editor to get to the truth!

The American Voter model is the joke of the world, and this decision about a weak ID requirement will not change this matter. If we, as a nation wanted to make America a real representative republic we would institute a citizen Identification system that would identify our citizens.

Biometrics would do the trick. A requirement to register one’s fingerprints or retina configurations would be simple enough to do. Each voting district would require the person wishing to vote, to place his or her finger on a biometric reader or look into a lens that would verify their status in a second. There would be no voting district that would be so large that it could not accommodate such verification in less than one second using computers.

The catch? Yup, there is one, the person registering to vote would have to provide proof that he or she is a citizen at the district registration center. You know, similar to the proof needed to register for the Social Security Program. If a true citizen lacks such proof, he can request a certified copy of his birth certificate from the county that he was born in.
Naturalized citizen? All Naturalized citizens already have their citizenship papers and guard them like life itself.

Let’s face it, any who might object to this requirement are nefarious agents of the Democrat Party who want any foreigners who happen to be in the United States to be able to vote for Democrat candidates. Why would any others want the voters to remain anonymous?

And the chances of a true voter ID system coming about? Yup, snowball’s chance in Perdition, because the Democrats will fight it tooth and nail.
