That's because you are easily fooled by the Democrat party.
No one is trying to make it hard for people to vote. More like the Democrat party is trying to make it so almost anyone, whether citizen or not, to vote in election that affect Americans.
From a purely Republic standpoint, I can see their point. When the founders were around, immigrants were coming into the nation. They needed to be able to vote in their locality, i.e their state. Not everyone living in a state was a citizen, but they were still living in the state and they needed to vote on local things. They may not have had I.D. back then, but they still needed to register to vote so the county or whatever knew they lived there.
Federal elections is different and you need to be a citizen to vote in them. So you need to be able to identify yourself. If someone puts in a little effort, there should be no problem with getting an I.D. If they have trouble, they need to work through it instead of throwing their hands up and saying "Oh well, I cant do it" and then blaming Republicans. In the off times of the year, that's when they need to be getting I.D., finding out where their polling place is, arranging transportation, etc., You know? Planning.
There is no reason for someone to not be able to vote in today's society. The democrat argument is just -------- to me.
Here in N.C., the bums on the corner's begging for money have to have a picture I.D. issued by the city to beg. If they can get one, anyone else can too..
