Kill this Veto!

I agree, 100%, with the fist paragraph and Bev's quote;

    "The right to choose our leaders is among the most precious freedoms we have – both as Americans and North Carolinians. North Carolinians who are eligible to vote have a constitutionally guaranteed right to cast their ballots, and no one should put up obstacles to citizens exercising that right."

Then, uh, it's gets a little lost after that. MY right is to cast a ballot without having to worry that it will be affected by someone who isn't who they say they are. With the system we have now, there are plenty of ways to cheat the system.

Heck, if you can read upside down, all you have to do is stand in line, give the volunteer a name out of the register and then vote. With a 33% turnout, you have a one-in-three chance that the other person will never show up anyway! Then, it's just a matter of returning and getting a second chance.

Checking picture ID's will not prevent cheating...but it will sure help slow it down.
