As a person who isn’t registered to vote I never thought too much about a requirement of having a valid photo ID to be able to vote. After reading this article on CNN, I began to understand why people wouldn’t want this valid photo ID law passed. It would create a problem with the people who live in rural areas of Texas that takes a couple hours to get to a place where you can get a valid photo ID, or a passport or some kind of proper identification to allow you to vote. No one wants to drive that far for something that little. It would also hurt the person who don’t drive and doesn’t require a driver’s license or someone who doesn’t have the money to get a Texas ID, or they don’t have anybody to take them to their local driver’s license station to obtain one. People also think it would bring discrimination with the new law. This law wouldn’t take in consideration by the color of your skin or your ethnicity. It would affect everyone that doesn’t have the proper identification to be able to vote or the means to obtain one. In this article on CNN statistics show that about 600,000 registered voters lack the state issued driver’s license or identification card. This law wouldn’t cut down on fraud, it would create problems for the people who have issues obtaining a proper identification card, or possibly someone who has physical or mental disabilities and couldn’t get one. I’m sure someone with a physical disability is still in the right frame of mind to vote. It’s just another way to take our hard earned money out of our pockets and use it one something that is irrelevant.
