NC is looking to enact a voter id bill to help “protect” against voting fraud, primarily pushed for by conservatives because clearly that is why they must be losing elections. But what I find funny is that in NC, conservatives have one many of the seats that were up for re-election including the governorship. I think this bill will ultimately bite them in the butt when the tides shift.

Here are some “voter fraud” links:

While I have a valid government issue ID and am ok with showing it to vote, my biggest problem with the bill is that I don’t believe there is widespread voter fraud as this bill claims to solve. Personally I don’t see the need for this bill.
