Recently there have been proposals about a voter identification law. If the proponents want to require voters to have a photo ID when they vote, then all registered voters should have a photo ID voter registration card so that no qualified voter is discriminated against.
The U.S. Constitution requires that all voters are at least 18 years of age and are a citizen of the United States. No state or local government or special interests are allowed to discriminate on the basis of race, religion, sex, national origin or political affiliation.
States are allowed to deny convicted felons the right to vote.
The only immigrants who have the right to vote are naturalized citizens. Anyone who is born in the United States regardless of where their parents originated from is a U.S. citizen.
If a proposed voter ID law is designed to prevent unauthorized people from voting, than I am in favor of the proposed law. If the proposed law is going to discriminate against certain races, ethnic groups, political affiliations, religions or age groups, then I oppose the proposed law.
