Lame Duck Governor Out of Step With Electorate

Henry vetoed a bill that would require some type of identification to vote. At the same time the state legislature apparently knowing what Henry was about to do, passed another measure that now by-passes the governor and allows we the people to vote on this measure this fall. I can't wait. You can read more about it here.

The Chigger is not a fan of Governor Brad Henry. This was a common sense bill. He is in his last term as governor.

How can you drive, cash a check, etc without producing some identification. How could it possibly disenfranchise anyone? Even the illegals can obtain a photo id at any tag office for a small fee.

Long lines at the polling booth? Are you kidding me?

Voting is not only a right, but even more it is a privilege. Casting an uninformed vote is irresponsible and a fradulent vote is unacceptable. At this point in our history, we need to do whatever it takes to keep/restore our faith in our voting system. This bill would go a long way to do that.
