Texas Legislature will be debating the requirement of ID when voting, Republicans are for this, Democrats are against. The Dems argue that this is nothing more than an attempt to suppress votes by minorities, elderly and disabled. I am wondering if those that are included in those classifications are unable to attain a state ID (different from a DL)? I don't understand why it's a bad thing to verify that a person is who they say they are. What's next? Do we stop requiring that when someone speeds that they show a driver's license to avoid their embarassment of a horrible picture? I am totally for requiring ID and can't understand the other side. Can someone enlighten me?

The Democrats don't want anyone to have to show their ID so that they can continue to support the lying and cheating practices by AKORN. They also want to be able to slip in illegals in to vote for their side. That how The Democrats are do what you want without any accountability.

I vote in TX and I bring my ID with me (in addition to my voter registration card). They only require one of those when I have voted in the past, but I am in support of requiring both. With our rights as citizens, comes responsibilities. I don't know about DMV in all states, but I do know that you can make an appointment in some states (CA is one) to shorten your wait time. It's a different line and you had to have made an appointment.
