Skip to comments.Fun Fact: Obama Lost in Every State with a Photo Voter-ID Law.
Posted on 11/08/2012 11:49:13 AM PST by CharlesMartelsGhost
Was the election stolen? Remember all those lawsuits by Democrats demanding that any voter identification laws be repealed? Well, now we know why they filed them. They needed to steal the vote in certain key states so that Obama could be reelected.
Curiously, Obama lost in every state that requires a photo ID to be produced before voting. A list of closely contested state elections with no voter ID, which narrowly went to Obama include: Minnesota (10), Iowa (6), Wisconsin (10), Nevada (6), Colorado (9), New Mexico (5) and Pennsylvania (20).
This amounts to a total of 66 electoral votes. When added to Romneys total of 205 electoral votes, that would give Romney 271 electoral votes, enough votes to win even without Ohio or Florida Romney also likely had the states of Florida and Ohio stolen from him, which dont require photo IDs.
Ohio requires a non-photo ID. Would a library card do? Florida requests a photo ID, but doesnt require it. So what happens if they request a photo ID and the illegal alien Haitian doesnt have one? Do they just count the vote anyway?
Let me be the first to state the obvious... Results are probably representative and reality for the rest of the states as well.
Doesn’t PA have a voter id law?
Not sure about PA, but Red Hampshire sure as hell does...my MIL has been in this town going on 75 years, and she had to show hers!
I think your data is incorrect. I voted in Central Ohio, and they required a photo-ID from me prior to allowing me to vote.
Unless it is county-specific?
Hold on...they are parsing a bit here...if you didn’t have photoID in Red Hampshire, you could sign an affidavit; which goes around to the State Attorney General, then to your house for verification, then back to the state...yada, yada, yada.
Wrong info. Quit posting lies.
wrong.. michigan requires a photo ID to vote...
Details are at the link. The voter ID law was a booby prize for not implementing what would have been far more effective: electoral votes allocated by congressional district like Maine and Nebraska do.
Details are also at the link.
Correlation is not causation. It’s probably that states that have voter id laws are conservative states.
Great info. Keep this, update and repost in October 2014.
For the first time in my adult life I am ashamed of my state.
You know how the enemedia will spin that, though; it disenfranchised his voters in those states!
The graphic is not correct for Louisiana. You must have a photo ID to vote electronically and have that voted counted at that time. If you do not have a photo ID, you then have to produce a non-photo ID and also sign a sworn affidavit that you will return with a photo ID before your ballot can be counted at the end of the day. So if you have no photo-ID or you don’t return with one by 8 pm, your ballot is not counted.
FYI...PA does have and has had a photo ID voter law up to this year. The Obama group took it to court as in other states. They cleverly TIMED the suits so that even if they lost(which was likely) judges would be prone to suspernd the requirement for THIS election since proximity to the election might create a hardship for the non- photo ID holders.
So that is exactly what happened in PA. Next year we WIll have our voter-photo ID law resume.
PA voter id law was put on hold for this election by a judge.
Florida has ID law, sorry. Freaking dem in 2008 actually matched my signature to my DL.
I’m in Ohio and I assure you - we have to provide proof with an ID. However, it can be an electric bill with your name on it. I voted and definitely had to show an ID.
The clerk or inspector shall require each elector, upon entering the polling place, to present a current and valid picture identification as provided in s. 97.0535(3)(a). If the picture identification does not contain the signature of the voter, an additional identification that provides the voter’s signature shall be required.
You are incorrect
Michigan law 168.35:
Each voter must show a photo ID or sign an affidavit attesting that he or she is not in possession of photo identification.
An individual who does not possess, or did not bring to the polls, photo ID, may sign an affidavit and vote a regular ballot.
The rest of Florida law 101.043:
Acceptable Forms of ID:
Florida driver’s license
Florida ID card issued by the Dept. of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles
Debit or credit card
Retirement center identification
Neighborhood association ID
Public assistance identification
Not every debit and credit card has a picture on it.
If the elector fails to furnish the required identification, the elector shall be allowed to vote a provisional ballot. The canvassing board shall determine the validity of the ballot by determining whether the elector is entitled to vote at the precinct where the ballot was cast and that the elector had not already cast a ballot in the election.
Florida uses signature matching: the voter signs the provisional ballot envelope. That signature is compared to the signature in the voter registration records. If they match, the ballot is counted.
A signature verification is not a photo ID.
Ohio law §3503.16(B)(1)(a) and 3505.18(A)(1):
All voters must provide to election officials at the polling place on the day of an election proof of the voter’s identity. Also applies to voters requesting and voting an absentee ballot.
Acceptable forms of ID:
Current and valid photo identification, defined as a document that shows the individuals name and current address, includes a photograph, includes an expiration date that has not passed, and was issued by the U.S. government or the state of Ohio
Current utility bill
Current bank statement
Current government check, paycheck or other government document
Utility bills, bank statements, paychecks, et al do not have photos on them.
For voters without ID:
A voter who has but declines to provide identification may cast a provisional ballot upon providing a social security number or the last four digits of a social security number. A voter who has neither identification nor a social security number may execute an affidavit to that effect and vote a provisional ballot. A voter who declines to sign the affidavit may still vote a provisional ballot.
Voters who cast a provisional ballot because they did not provide acceptable proof of identity must appear in person at the board of elections to provide such proof within the 10 days immediately following Election Day. (see the Ohio Secretary of State’s FAQ on provisional voting)
How strictly counties interpret or apply the law? Have to agree county by county depending on Election officials, poll workers etc...
They passed voter ID but one scumbag commie judge postponed the implementation till after the election.Convenent wouldnt you say.
Louisiana law §18:562:
Each applicant shall identify himself, in the presence and view of the bystanders, and present identification to the commissioners.
If the applicant does not have identification, s/he shall sign an affidavit to that effect before the commissioners, and the applicant shall provide further identification by presenting his current registration certificate, giving his date of birth or providing other information stated in the precinct register that is requested by the commissioners. However, an applicant that is allowed to vote without the picture identification required by this Paragraph is subject to challenge as provided in R.S. 18:565.
