We need to do away with all forms of voter control that actually, often, if not always, purposely, inhibit people from voting.

We need nationalized rules for voting, from the Federal Government, so all states' rules are the same. It is stupid to have all these different rules, we are one country, not 50 countries. And the voting needs to be regulated on the national level too. No more gerrymandering, etc.

I live in Texas and the laws have become very restrictive. It mostly affects women. Voting is an essential part of democracy. These laws are to skew elections.

I agree with Barbara K that rules for voting should be uniform throughout the 50 states. BUT, at what point should proof of citzenship be required--(1) When a state-issued photo ID is obtained, or (2) At the time of voter registration, or (3) At the polls? Or do you feel that proof of citizenship should NOT be required at any time in the voting process?

The surest way to protect voting rights for women is to vote out the people who are working to limit voting to groups they have a vested interest in seeing at the polls. It's not hard to figure out who they are; they are blatant cheaters and don't do much to cover their activities.

Protecting voting rights is a must and no group or individual should attempt to stymie that. Thanks JL.

MN doesn't allow online registration. Along with this suit they should offer rides and help to get a picture ID, or help getting the needed documents. That should cut down those numbers considerably. I get my MN ID card right at the driver's licence place, no hassles to renew, and good wherever picture ID is needed.

Do understand there are some seniors who have no way to get birth certificates, but others, like myself, can and do. My mom is in TN and votes absentee ballot because she's homebound...when she signed up she did have to go to the courthouse eith birth certificate. Since then no problems.

Cecily W - I assume you mean proof of eligibility to vote? Since there are some elections in which you don't have to be a citizen to be eligible to vote?

I am fine with the Feds setting standards and regulations for Federal elections, in every state, to ensure they are fair and uniform. I am not so sure I want the Feds setting the rules for elections for state offices, county offices, local city and town offices, school boards, special districts (probably there are some states that don't have those but where I am there are a ton of them), and other purely local decisions.

BTW spammer flagged. I always do. If your link to do so isn't visible, try refreshing the page; I find that usually makes it turn up. The more spam reporters the merrier.
