Apply to register to vote in Texas and your application needs to have your original signature. Sounds reasonable? Not according to Democrats. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee have both sued the state claiming this is just downright unfair. Eric Holder, complaining bitterly about “gerrymandering” when Republicans do it, is floating $10 million in the state to make sure redistricting turns out in the Democrats’ favor. We have to wonder — how in the world do they get away with this stuff? Let’s not let them.

When Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams ran for office last year, he promised the citizens of the state that he would “make it easy to vote and hard to cheat.” Adams is supporting a Senate Bill requiring photo ID at the polls to prove you are really you and voting yourself. It also provides a free ID for anyone over 18 years old (voting age) who does not have a driver’s license. Now the association for Bluegrass State county clerks opposes the law. The Kentucky County Clerks Association was also busy in 2019 pushing Democrats into positions of critical importance at the State Board of Elections. One would think County officials would want to assure voters in their community that their legal votes would never be negated by an illegitimate one. Apparently in Kentucky, not so much. What is the position of your county clerk? Might be a good time to ask.
More than 35 states have passed requirements that voters present specific documentation or photo ID when voting. In near equal numbers, liberal activist judges have done their best to block enforcement of these statutes. Republicans in Nebraska are now trying to pass an amendment to the state Constitution that would require presentation of photo ID at the polls. Liberal groups are already calling it unnecessary and hollering that it would disenfranchise people without IDs. Except the state provides free photo IDs. So, once again, the anti-vote integrity crowd peddles disinformation about a law that should be acceptable to everyone who doesn’t want to cheat.
