Currently, every state in America requires voters to prove their identities before receiving a ballot; different states require different levels of proof. Legislators in states across the country are now promoting bills that would require voters to meet more stringent documentation requirements before voting—including presenting photo identification at the polls on Election Day in order to cast a ballot.

There are firm supporters of these bills, who believe that is the most effective way to decrease voter fraud.

There are those who believe that the costs incurred to implement the requirements would be exorbitant, and the principles that would be required under the Constitution would be too stringent.

Others say that it restricts many from being able to vote … mostly older, low-income, and minority citizens.

We perhaps should also consider how Obama’s Amnesty Bill will play into, not only more stringent photo ID requirements … but our overall voting process, in America.

Debbie Barth and her esteemed panel … Linda J Alexander, Bea Kunz, Sandy Estlow, and Eileen Brown … are talking the pros and the cons concerning more stringent voting requirements.   Which ladies are voting “Yea or Nay?”  Tune into the show and find out.
