If the GOP is so worried about Voter fraud, why no ID's for GOP primary?


Why are the rules only supposed to apply to non GOP voters? Just wondering?
I couln't imagine why...

Can you say state laws? When voter laws are changed that applies to the primary elections as well.

Well, the OP in this thread is wonderfully ambiguous and un-useful. I'd be glad to add to the conversation...

Why do Unions use non-union labor?

I had to show my ID as well.

Nice try. If ID is NOT mandated it is the letter of the law at the moment.

LOL nice try.

We haven't yet voted our Primary here in Texas, but through the years, I have ALWAYS had to show my ID before getting my voting ticket number and getting to vote.

If you don't show your ID, I believe you can get a "provisional" form to vote on (I've never done that), but it's not counted in the election unless it's verified, and that creates a lot of extra work.

Perhaps the originator might want to close this thread being as it's just causing embarrassment for himself since his "issue" isn't an issue at all.

Hrm... quite the opposite it would seem.

I fail to see how I can legally get a driver's license with my photo on it and a legitimate voter card long before any election, but that an Hispanic cannot.
What obstacles are in an Hispanic's way to do something so simple that I don't seem to have any trouble with?

Funny our unlicensed population in California is mostly illegal hispanics ,well at least in LA, where they still want to get them some sort of licence, probably subsidize for those that claim hardship.
I always throw down my licence while voting or any process that requires my name and address, it speeds things up and eliminates chances of error.

How do these people deal with the government if they have no ID ? They work ?What no SS card either ? Dang most areas even for pretty minor offences can hold you until they can validate who you are.
