    so when a low income elderly person who relies on public transportation, brings the expired ID to vote, instead of a current one, and they are prevented from voting, they can just send one of their aides back home to fetch it for them.

    Aren’t right wingers always insisting that politicians live by the same rules as everyone else? If this guy can have a “staffer” retrieve his mandatory id, then everybody should have that right.

    Spokesman Christian Olson told The Associated Press that Asa Hutchinson forgot his ID when he attempted to vote at the polls in Bentonville on Monday. Olson says a staffer was able to retrieve the ID and bring it to Hutchinson so he could vote.

      Hey arc, an ID can be 4 years expired and still be used. Also, A person who lives in a long-term or residential care facility licensed by the state does not have to show photo I.D. They must have documentation from the facility administrator, stating they are a resident of the facility.

        That “4 year” thing may apply in Arkansas (but I’d check the facts if I were you) but in Texas the law stipulates a voter must have a valid, current, state-issued photo ID.

    I have no problem with requiring voter ID. It is just that , in Canada, a voter has so many options to establish his/her ID that it is hard to think of a legitimate voter being turned away.

    …be careful little hand what you sign
    be careful little hand what you sign,
    even though it may excite you,
    it could come back to bite you

    be careful little hand what you sign.
