Ruling on voter ID makes no sense at all

info@islandpacket.comOctober 30, 2012 

For the past several years, we have been required to show photo ID in order to vote, at least in my precinct, even though some of the election officials know us personally.

Now, with the recent approval of South Carolina's voter ID law, an absurd ruling doesn't allow it this critical presidential election year.

Instead of using existing procedures, presumably new procedures must be implemented.

Every time I read a newspaper or hear the news, there seems to be another absurd ruling or lawsuit. The border is wide open and illegal immigration rampant, yet the Justice Department sues states for trying to do what the federal government should do, but doesn't.
