Way to go, O-H-I-O
I just received my Cuyahoga County suppress-the-democratic-vote guide today. On the cover and inside we are told:
OFFICIAL NOTICE: Voters must bring identification to the polls in order to verify identity. Identification may include a current and valid photo identification, a military identification that shows the voter’s name and current address, or a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document, other than this reminder or a voter registration notification, that shows the voter’s name and current address. Voters who do not provide one of these documents will still be able to vote by providing the last four digits of the voter’s social security number and by casting a provisional ballot. Voters who do not have any of the above forms of identification, including a social security number, will still be able to vote by signing an affirmation swearing to the voter’s identity under penalty of election falsification and by casting a provisional ballot (ORC 3501.19).
What kind of new deterrent is this realistically going to provide for voter fraud? Open letter to Ken Blackwell: Your suppress-the-vote scheme will not succeed in getting your 20-points-behind ass elected.
