Apparently Wyoming doesn’t care about landing the all star game...
Government: *Won’t require voting ID*
The States: “Fine, I’ll do it myself.”
Forget Jim Crow this is like the Holocaust ON STEROIDS!!!!!!!
It's jim falcon.
Damn, what a racist. /s
I was thinking the same thing, he has made the right choice but man is he going to get hate..
Its as if he doesn't want people to cheat.
No all star game for you!!
This idea that having to have an ID to vote is racist, a poll tax, and whatever other excuse the left uses against getting an ID is so tiresome. I grew up very poor on the westside of Chicago. It was never a problem to get an ID.
In this country and pretty much every country around the world. you need an ID to pretty much do anything.
Honestly I would be in favor of a free universal ID if someone is unable to obtain a drivers license. Of all the stupid things this country wastes money on it would be a useful thing for the 0.000001% of Americans who don’t have an ID otherwise.
Makes sense to me.
How racist, how is someone supposed to get an ID?
I know, right? I remember when I went to renew my drivers license last year there was a big, huge sign at the DMV that said “we don’t issue IDs to minorities”
Good on Wyoming!
Wow so radical!!!
Wyoming has, historically, been ahead of the curve on voting.
Not hard when there’s only 14 people that live there. When you leave, don’t forget to turn out the lights! /s. /joke. /playingaround / havingfun.
Way to go Wyoming. We need more like Wyoming
If i have to have an ID to pick up my prescription, fly, pick up my order at Target...I think its reasonable to vote in the election for the presidency of the United States.
Either you are eligible to vote or your not. If you are not eligible, get eligible, you have 3 plus years.
You need an ID to cash a stimulus check, but you don’t need an ID to vote for the people that wrote your stimulus check? I guess that makes perfect sense
Too mad the mlb can't protest wyoming... Lol. Fuck the MLB.
I wonder if they will take those little printed temporary IDs ,🤔
Excellent, excellent! Well done Wyoming.
I dont hate the idea but is the state gonna pay to get everyone who doesnt an ID a form of it?
I've lived in Wyoming almost my whole life and as far as I remember, I've ALWAYS had to show ID when I voted. Does anybody know how this is different?
Unfortunately it needs to happen in larger swing/borderline swing states with more electoral votes - Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Carolina, South Carolina, etc need similar laws.
Now if other states could follow that same.. It's crazy how huge countries like india can have universal voter id while the greatest nation on earth can't. 'Anti-racism' is literally ruining us.
But wait a minute, I was lead to believe voter ID laws targeted black people. But Wyoming is only 1.6% black...
And most of them already have IDs.
In Kansas, we have to present an ID, put it into a scanner, and have it validated by the government before we can vote. Not a lot of fraud here...
They claimed VA had voting fraud....but we have had voter ID requirements for as a long as I have been voting.
RACIST. I cant believe he has the audacity to require verification that you're a US citizen in order to vote in elections!!! sike
What I can’t comprehend is,here in Georgia, a voter ID is FREE. When I mention that, liberals tell me that it’s still hard for minorities because they have to take time off from work and sit at the DMV all day because “resources are limited in high minority population areas.” *I have to do the same thing!*
So it went from being racist because they can’t afford $10 for the ID, to they can’t figure out how do it, to now, it’s just inconvenient.
The real kicker is when they say, “Since there’s never been any evidence of election fraud, why even require IDs to vote?” How the hell do you know there hasn’t been any election fraud when you don’t even know who the hell is voting??
Rationalizing things with my daughters when they were kids was never as hard as it is with adult liberals.
This has the potential to radically change the outcome of future elections 😳😳😳
Dems are counting on their amnesty illegals voting (for them the handout kings) to swamp alot of areas that have close elections in their favro
that 15 million (fisrt amnesty with probably another after that)
I’m all for voter ID. It’s absurd that it’s not required everywhere- BUT, constitutionally, I believe they should only be required if they’re mandatory. If everybody MUST have an id that the government enforces possession of, I’m all for it.
US is only country in the world where a personal ID of some sort is not required, and one of the reasons there’s such a problem with finding illegals. Since nobody NEEDS to have an ID, potentially everybody/anybody without one COULD be a citizen. Anyplace else in the world it’s “let me see your papers please”.
My qualm with this law, and also the Georgia law isn’t that they require ID, I’m all for that as I say. My problem with it is that the laws don’t simultaneously legislate that the state must provide the id- saying “well, anybody is welcome to come and get one” isn’t enough, because everybody knows that there’s a certain demographic who are reluctant to “come and get one”. Look at all the comments here joking about how “oh Wyoming is racist”. Well- if you look at them objectively, precisely because the required IDs are voluntary instead of mandatory and minority communities are 1) more distrusting of government - ironically - than r/conservative is and 2) because, by chance, there are fewer places in their districts to acquire those IDs, yes they’re racist laws. More importantly, they’re laws that clearly favour one party over another.
Restrictive Jim Eagle voting!!
If an illegal can stroll up to a DMV office and manage to get a driver's license, then there's no excuse for anybody living here not to be able to get an ID.
...All 17 people demand free ID
I thought you had to do this everywhere. What else do you show up with? A whimsical attitude and a polaroid with a photo of you next to a mailbox nearby?
I would *love* to try this.
Thats great, but I dont feel like Wyoming is much of an issue. Id like to see this movement come to a rust belt state near you! PA, OH, MI, MN, WI. But also to aTX, FL, AZ bc those are the hot beds for illegals. Also they would never do it but I would love to see it and CA and NY, because I'll bet their overall vote total would drop possibly by hundreds of thousands.
I live in NY and when I voted they asked for nothing. It was bizarre. Especially in this day and age when you can look up peoples' birthdates, addresses, net worths, arrests on google with no effort, thanks to background check sites
I go a little left on some issues and right on others, but I don't get how IDs have become polarizing. Like, I can't do shit without an ID, but you want me to vote with just my signature? Really? I feel like if Biden wants to tack on all of this frivolous shit to an "Infrastructure" plan for billions of dollars, why not subsidize IDs for the people who can't afford them/don't have them for whatever reason? Like, I went to college and got one free photo ID, if I lost it, I had to buy another one. Can't we do something like that? Seems fairly reasonable.. Everyone gets a social security card. A photo ID can't cost that much, the only issue I see with this is an influx of people at photo ID centers which are at lower capacity because of covid (which is another issue on its own...) and not enough staff to process, but come on. High demand shouldn't be a negative for an idea for the public.
As long as they make it easy and free to get an ID, go for it. Passports and drivers licenses cost money and same with insurance cards. So give us free ID and great! People on tribal lands get free IDs so why can't everyone?
These bills should just say voter id requirements are the same as voting in the DNC primary and boarding a delta plane. Then the left will go crazy
I don't understand how this isn't already a thing for every state. Secure elections should be one of the top priorities of a free country or else we just end up being a banana Republic
The 2020 election was already the most secure election in American history
IDs cost $10. Still a poll tax.
Just because the ID you prefer is $10 doesn’t mean it’s the only one available. In all states with voter ID laws a voter ID is free.
Nothing wrong with requiring ID to vote, but what Georgia is doing is much, much more than that. They’re simply treading on civil liberties
I really don't understand why dems fight this so hard. Like everyone else is saying, you need an ID to do *anything*. So if needing one to vote is racist, so is needing one for any other activity (and miss me with the whole "voting is my constitutional right" bullshit. So is gun ownership, and even if it wasn't, since when does something not being constitutionally protected make it non-racist?).
I entirely support people getting non-drivers license IDs and programs that assist people who can't even afford that or people who are elderly or have mental needs and struggle for any reason to get an ID. Also those very, very few people who don't have the documentation necessary *for* an ID (I only say this because you see it crop up on r/legaladvice every so often, and they're usually going people whose sov cit parents messed everything up for them).
Special circumstances can be handled and accommodated on an individual basis. That doesn't mean checking IDs is *unfair*.
Indiana next please
I can't even buy a bitcoin without confirming my ID in multiple ways.
Showing a license to vote is more than fair.
How lovely. State mandate's the way to go.
Wait so is it still racist now? There are like six black people in all of Wyoming.
I'm sorry but what's the big deal about having to ID to vote? I have to show ID to buy booze, cigs, marijuana etc. So why not to vote?
I do find it funny that the right is all for IDs for voting and the left is not but when the topic comes to guns, the left wants IDs and background checks and the right does not.
I think it's important to ask liberals/leftists and understand where they are coming from. Get it from the horse's mouth as Americans like to put it. From what I have heard, most of them are not really against IDs but other things like prevent giving drinks to people in queues, having fewer polling stations in black communities such that they have to wait for long hours to cast a ballot whereas that's not the case for predominantly white communities, End voting at 5 pm which inconveniences working people who knock off around that time and removing Sunday as a voting day which is considered most free day for black people to vote. I may misrepresent their concerns but I think it's something along these lines. These are the things you need to give rebuttal on. I think the ID thing is a no-brainer, most of them agree you need an ID to vote. And let me ask this since am not American, how did they vote in the previous elections? Where they not required to present IDs?
Non American what is a Voter ID and how is it different from standard ID card?
This annoys like what the two Democrats that live in Wyoming?
I got my covid vaccine today and had a *very* interesting conversation with a nurse.
At sign in, they demanded to see my photo ID.
I asked her why and she said “it’s very important that we verify the identity of people getting the vaccine”
I then asked “How do people without ID get the shot?” She looked at me with a puzzled look and dead serious said “Who doesn’t have ID? Everyone has photo ID, it’s required”.
Now I’m standing there with a huge grin, can’t stop myself.
“But we can’t require ID for voting, how can you require it for healthcare?”
Then a second nurse joined in “Voting is completely different”.
And I replied “Denying life saving healthcare is significantly more serious”.
Huge sigh from the second nurse. Point, match.
I sincerely doubt this happened, but on the very slim chance it did: why the fuck are you hassling random nurses about this shit? They have a job to do and you're wasting their time, just shut up and move along, there's a time and a place to get up on your soapbox, but the line for a vaccine is not one of them.
2 down, 48 to go.
I don’t understand how people think voter ids are racist but don’t think the identifications that people need to give to employers when starting a job aren’t.
In an ideal world the government wouldn’t be so wasteful with our money that they could actually afford to give people one ID every year without charging a ridiculous fee.
I hope they arrest the Atl mayor for signing the EO to void a state law.
What is a “military map of the United States “?
