    Who drew the district lines to begin with?

    Answer: democrats

    My neighbor was a State Senator for 20+ years. His favorite saying regarding debate in the chamber was for Republicans to sit in the back and shut up.

    My county elected a Republican County Commissioner, the first since 1860. His district lines were promptly redrawn by democrats in this county that changed his district by over 80%. He won't get re elected.

    Your right, the Dems fail to acknowledge they drew the district lines to help them, pure hypocrisy from whining losers.

    Well, good riddance to that ignorance-indulging crap. I don't even think party affiliation should be on the ballot at all. That's what campaign material and people having their heads out of their butts is for.

    Getting a college ID (I went to school here) from a UNC school is nothing more than walking into the registrar and stating you name and getting your picture taken. That's it. I never had to provide anything other than that. Now, things may have changed somewhat, but I am sure there is nothing standard amongst the colleges for what is required to get an ID.

    Doesn't seem reasonable for a voting poll to accept that.

    Student ID is not sufficient identification, period.

    Good that he signed it. About time states start stepping up and using common sense.

    Why, I'm shocked! No, really. I am shocked that a liberal publication would have a sob story that isn't based in reality. If Ms. Eaton wants to reconcile the irregularities that have been allowed to exist in her ID and voter registration card, there are legal aid offices and law schools that have clinics and pro bono requirements -- all for free. Shouldn't voters take some responsibility for making sure their documents are correct? Sounds like you think because she's AA, she's not capable of being responsible for herself -- talk about racist.

    actually, I'd think the exact same thing about a 92-year-old white woman who has been voting legally for decades and now has to go through a lot of legal red tape for no particular reason other than one political party passes a bunch of changes to election laws that it thinks will improve its chances of winning.

    River ably demonstrates every times this topic comes up, that the government could resolve all quirky issues for you, and hand deliver every voter a photo ID with five $100 bills paperclipped to it, and Democrats would still oppose showing a valid state issued photo ID at the polling location.

    I've pointed out before that if Obama were 1/1000 as bad as you guys say, you wouldn't have to post falsehood after falsehood about him. The truth would be enough.

    On that same note, if you have to make up stuff like you just did, you must not feel you have a valid enough argument to rely on the truth.

    Yep. And the three states with the toughest ID requirements, Georgia being one, have some of the highest minority voting rates in the country.

    Not sure that's true. Georgia's African-American vote turnout was right about the national average. It's below most of the other Southeastern states like Alabama, Miss, SC ... North Carolina had not voter ID requirements in 2012 and black turnout was 16 points higher than Georgia's.

    Oh dear.

    Georgia's black voter turnout was above the national average and above the Georgia's average.

    Oh, and the 2012 black voter rate in Georgia was above the 2008 rate too.

    But other than all that...well...that IS the story.

    The funniest thing is, you are talking to a poster who is always accusing the other side of whining.

    Can't make this stuff up.

    No bigger whining issue than this voter id issue.
