They just hate a democracy where people other than themselves can vote.

You can't request to see an ID (driver's license or state ID) when some tries to vote so why link the two? Need a Fishing License? Be prepared to preseent your driver's license and social security number. Shouldn't it be easier to fish than to vote? Registering people without their specific intent will ultimately lead to more fraud (I hate "opt outs" in general). Regitering on election day is easy enough and only get those that are truely interested in voting registered.

Why create obstacles to voter registration? I can't wait for someone to say this has something to do with ACORN.

The governor talks about streamlining services. What is he afraid of?

That would have allowed illegals who had a driver's license or state identification card to vote.

I guess that "anyone" means illegal aliens, new immigrants who walk in a get a drivers license. Anyone underage who applies. Why not just round up anyone who walks and breaths off of the street and let them vote? Not a good bill and Pawlenty should have never had to look at it.

VOTING is an intentional, voluntary act. REGISTERING to vote is a bureaucratic act-- why make it intentionally more difficult than it needs to be? Why not go back to poll taxes and literacy tests then?
