Yikes! " Franken won more of the absentee ballots in an extremely close election.Franken was literally behind until we started counting the ballots." Let's hope history does not repeat itself in this election.

Democratic Party motto: Vote early, vote often. Is it any wonder why Democrats oppose voter ID requirements and want anyone to claim they are anyone or register same day and vote?

You need to have a photo ID to go to the doctor or the bank so why is it such an issue to have one to vote? Do these people not go to the doctor or have a bank account?

arielbender: "I don't show a photo id for the doctor OR the bank." Me neither. Or to buy alcohol or cigarettes. That's just a right-wing red herring.

arielbender............I do. And pretty sure the bank would require one from you too if you were withdrawing cash from your account.

right guess again, it's pretty hard to get an ID to vote. Pretty easy to get through life without even having one. If it truly is important for you to vote, I am pretty sure you will find an ID won't you?

Absentee voting should be the only alternative to not voting on election day. All these states with early voting are costing themselves much more than the process should require.

Former Reagan adviser said at a large conservative conference, "We don't want all Democrats to vote." Shortly thereafter he helped to start American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) which has been behind the push to enact Voter ID laws. Voter ID is a nefarious and scurrilous attempt to rip the right to vote from legal, law-abiding voters.
