Vote due on Ohio bill to have voters show photo ID

Published: Wed, March 23, 2011 @ 11:25 a.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — The Ohio House plans to vote today on a fast-moving bill that would require Ohio voters to show a photo ID before they can cast a ballot.

Supporters say the measure is aimed at keeping people from trying to vote more than once. It would require voters to present photo identification at a polling place on Election Day or when casting an absentee ballot in person.

Democrats in the House are calling it a veiled poll tax, since some low-income or homeless Ohioans do not have IDs. They also complain the measure is being rushed. It cleared a House committee Tuesday night, seven days after being introduced.

Other opponents include the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio, AARP Ohio, and the Ohio AFL-CIO.

I honestly do not understand how anyone could possibly oppose this.

I am for it because I want my vote to be counted, and not subverted by fraud.

You have to show ID when you write a check, but not when voting? That is absurd.

Everyitme I have ever voted I have to show my id. So is this not the law? And if not why is it not law? It means anyone can go in, say they are you and vote. Then my voice is not heard!
