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 Remember all those lawsuits by Democrats demanding that any voter identification laws be repealed?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.
