There are 26 different states that have already implemented or proposed legislation in preventing certain individuals who don't have photo identification to vote. These laws are known as the voter fraud ID laws. As many people know, these laws are proposed for one purpose: to target young, elderly, & or low income people as well as minorities who usually tend to vote Democrat, rather than Republican. These laws directly impact a majority of these particular groups of people. Republicans will use these laws as an excuse, but the true objective is to decrease the number of votes for a Democrat.

You should not take away an individuals basic constitutional right to vote so that you may fuel a political agenda in your favor (in this scenario that is exactly what the Republicans are doing). A statistic showing just how ridiculous the voter fraud ID laws actually are is that in 2000 - 2010 there were 13 voter fraud cases in the United States. To put that in perspective, during the same time period there were 130 deaths by vending machines, 1500 deaths by coconuts, and 47,000 UFO sightings.
