Voting Laws to Get More Strict in Va.
Virginia voting laws are very close to becoming more strict. A bill passed in Virginia's senate requires all voters to show official identification before casting their ballot.

    I think it's interesting how some are whining that this law will keep people from voting. They will accept several forms of ID that any legitimate citizen of the U.S. will have. If some crackhead or welfare recipient can't get their act together to bring one of the forms of ID, then I for one don't want them voting anyway!

    Lets keep the students, seniors, and minorities from voting. You have a better chance of having a blizzard in May then having a voting problem in Virginia- less than 1 in 10,000 votes. Sad- lets go backwards Virginia and join the few states that folks see as anti American and close to facist/communism control. Denying a person right to vote is very sad- you are only protecting the class in power- the problem is not real- do we really need more laws?. Look at the countries that seek ID to vote or be in public- you will better understand.

    I think this is a step in the right direction. There were too many voter irregularties in the 08 election. This will correct most of those problems that surfuraced.
