    Exactly. When I got married and divorced, I had to get new SSN card, driver's license, insurance cards within 30 days. I call bullshit.

    @seedtick that's hilarious! This is now my boyfriend's favorite song. But seriously, these women cry because they are lazy. Just get new IDs already and quit being a bunch of pansies.

    @culinary When you are on this site scroll down and look at the "last verse" written by a woman....it's my wife's answer when she hears it.
    Look the voter ID boils down to personal responsibility. My opinion is: "If you ain't got one, git one!" and "If yours ain't right, git it right!" Don't expect the system to accommodate your laziness.

    How hard is it to re-register when you have your license renewed? Can anybody say "MOTOR VOTER?"

    Why do the libs seem to make something relatively simple seem so hard?

    @MemphisTiger89

    Because to them simple things are hard. Just look at the mess they get into in California over which restrooms they shopuld use.

    'Cause the harder it seems, the more the LIV (low informational voter) believe it's OUTRAGEOUS and OPPRESSIVE..........just down right un-american.......
    Liberals believe there should be no borders, no ID's, no workers, no independence. I think that about sums it up!

    Great TX license photoshop.

    Since Wendy Davis put the fear of God into them TX republicans have been working overtime to disenfranchise as many women as possible.

    It's only a matter of time until TX turns blue. Run Wendy Run. Turn Texas blue in 2014!

    @politixmary - If you do decide to move to Texas you'll probably like Austin better.

    @ProudTexican With the likes of GW Bush, Rick Perry, Ted Cruz and Louie Gohmert I wouldn't count on Texas staying red much longer.

    @mudzangandoro It scares the crap out of the national GOP to think of TX turning blue. Once this happens the democrats will un-gerrymander the congressional districts (if they play fair) or gerrymander them in favor of the dems (more likely). Either way once TX is blue there will be no way for the GOP to ever win another national election and the house will probably be blue for a generation.

    More excuses... When my ex-wife and I married she beat feet to change her id over and after our divorce I couldn't get her to ditch my last name from mine fast enough.
    There's no law that said she had to. Bottom line it's a big commitment to marry or divorce with having a driver liscence change of name being the easiest of both so BS is my response.

    Yep. This would only stop the dumb people from voting, those too stupid to update their information. Anyone that stupid shouldn't be allowed to vote anyway.

    THIS HAS BEEN PUBLISHED IN MY TEXAS COUNTY....And across the state. There is no excuse for not knowing what to do and getting it done. And, if a woman does not get her name changed on her drivers license as required she is in violation of the law when she drives, much less votes. READ AND LEARN.

    A voter will be required to show one of the following forms of photo identification at the polling location before the voter will be permitted to cast a vote:

     Texas driver license issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS)

     Texas Election Identification Certificate issued by DPS

     Texas personal identification card issued by DPS

     Texas concealed handgun license issued by DPS

     United States military identification card containing the person’s photograph

     United States citizenship certificate containing the person’s photograph

     United States passport

    With the exception of the U.S. citizenship certificate, the identification must be current or have expired no more than 60 days before being presented at the polling place.

    This photo ID requirement is for voters casting a ballot in person, not by mail. Voters age 65 and older may vote by mail.

    Election officials are encouraging voters to update their voter registrations to reflect the names on their IDs. Voters may use IDs that do not exactly match the name on their IDs if the names are substantially similar but will have to sign an affidavit stating they are the same person. Voters may look up their registration at votetexas.gov and if their name is not an exact match they can update their voter registration online at votetexas.gov .

    "By preparing now, voters can help make sure voting goes smoothly when it comes time for the election," said Newman

    To check and update their registrations, voters can visit direct to VoteTexas.gov or www.jasper.tx.us or call (409) 384-2632 for more information.

    For more information about photo ID requirements including exemptions, visit www.votetexas.gov

    Information on how to obtain an election identification certificate if you do not have another form can be found at www.dps.texas.gov

    You can ALWAYS make up any argument for why something ought to be changed. For example, should the requirement that absentee ballots bear a stamped postmarked be change? TENS OF THOUSANDS of ballots are DISQUALIFIED YEARLY from being counted this way. But, guess what? US Troops serving in Combat Zones, including Korea, Afghanistan and Iraq, mail in their ballots (when they are made available to them!!!) and since they are serving in COMBAT ZONES, all they have to do is write 'FREE' on the upper right hand corner of their envelope and their mail is sent free. When the (usually Democratic) County Clerks get them, the County Clerks have the option of COUNTING THEM, or chucking them because "they lack a postmark". Non-stamped mail does NOT get a post-mark. US troops OVERWHELMINGLY vote Republican. Mail stamped "Free" does NOT get a post-mark. Guess which party sh_tcans ballots without a postmark? There is PLENTY of time to make necessary changes. Do you know what? If you want to BUY GROCERIES at a US military base, FIRST you must produce military or dependent ID before you're on allowed on a US military base, and THEN you are REQUIRED to show ID before you're checked out to buy ANYTHING at a Commissary or Base Exchange/Post Exchage Store. If you're FREAKING REQUIRED to show ID to buy Ore Ida Cringle Fries at a Commissary or Military Rum why the HELL shouldn't you be required to show VALID ID to vote???!!!

    This law goes beyond having photo ID to vote. It will cause many women in Texas a problem to vote. Most people that have been married a while have no idea where their original marriage license is. Why would any state require a woman to have her original marriage license!? You are right to be upset about soldiers in combat getting their votes tossed. It is wrong and something that should be addressed! If anyone has the right to vote, it should be our men and women that are putting their lives on the line because our country sent them to vote. According to my husband who served in Desert Storm and my ex-husband who has served both in Iraq and Afghanistan, the majority of soldiers do vote republican. My brother served in Desert Storm and voted republican. He passed away in 2007 to cancer. My father served in Korea and voted republican. He passed away in 2009 to cancer. Both of my ex-husband and current husband also vote republican. To hear that their ballots are trashed because they are not post marked because the military mails them in for free is infuriating! Neither of them knew that this was something that was done. I'm sure my dad and my brother also did not know about this. All of them were/are officers.

    More conspiracy kookery about military ballots being thrown out, without a shred of evidence to support it ever having happened?
  • #172

    To the people that, in the inimitable Clintonian/shyster-ville style say "there is no evidence", I say B.S. There was plenty of THAT broadcast by the media in the 3-ring circus that was the 2000 election. It was openly admitted by County Clerks in predominantly Democratic counties ALL OVER Florida, and don't kid yourself, it happens elsewhere as well. The kookery is on the part of Democrats who sh_tcan the ballots and later say "there is no evidence". Of course, not. Disqualified ballots aren't held indefinitely, after a certain point in time, they are destroyed, otherwise humongous warehouses would be needed for all such disqualified ballots.

    actually, if everybody would stop voting, those democrats and republicans will ask how come the people are not voting. news media will ask too.
    then the people can answer back with " we don't like the choices we have to choose from to vote on" " we don't like who they represent when they are to represent us, The people"

    Or people can be responsible and update their info. Or would you rather let people register under any name they want regardless of what their id says.
  • #77
    !
    Perhaps I may have too much common sense, but if I am required to have a legal document to prove my identification and the information on the document is incorrect, why would I blame someone else for a simple pass/fail comparison?

    So...what we are really saying is that women need special concessions because they cannot follow legal requirements concerning their information on ID cards. Life can be pretty tough, sometimes you have to take a little initiative. The women I know (including my liberal wife) don't make excuses, they take care of their stuff...the idea that women can't take care of themselves is more inappropriate than this so called war against women.

    So this woman screws up by not updating all her info and was almost forced to use a provisional ballot rather than a regular ballot. She still could vote regardless, but she needs to update all her info for this not to happen. Like EVERYONE else regardless of race, gender or name change, we need to make sure all our information matches up. A bunch of something out of nothing.

    I wonder what's worse, deliberately disenfranchising a specific voter bloc or being so dense as to not anticipate this result of an unnecessary law. I mean, just 18 voter fraud prosecutions since 2000 ( http://goo.gl/fSGzrv ) out of 2,846,330 votes cast since 2002 ( http://goo.gl/L0CnhY ) is a pretty slim basis for denying women votes simply because they followed the family values bandwagon and got married.

    (How slim? Try 0.00063239%)

    It never was about voter fraud. Just counting votes typically results in errors in the near 1% range. It's always about keeping likely democratic voters away from the polls. Always.

    What they don't count on is the backlash from the groups they try to disenfranchise. Hopefully Texas women voters will come out in record numbers in 2014 and let these republicans know what they think of their little disenfranchisement games.

    Counting "prosecutions" isn't exactly valid when certain people have fought to ensure there's no way to verify who's who. And, how are you calling this "deliberate disenfranchisement" when the only reason this lady is having a problem is because she didn't do what people are supposed to do when their name changes and update her information...I guess she hasn't had time?...in the last 50yrs?(Rhetorical.) Your accusation doesn't hold up and neither does anyone else's "suppression" conspiracy theories.

    Isn't it already the law to update your DL anyway. Most states let you update voter information at the same time with little to no effort. Please don't mistake disenfranchising with lazy and stupid. If you change your name, legally you must update your plastic. It's all blown out of proportion and people scream and cry bloody murder for something so simple and easy to do.
  • #140

    Ludicrous. Everyone knows that when you get married, you change your driver's license. How on earth is that disenfranchising anyone? How stupid do you liberals think women are? This is the entire liberal mindset. People are too stupid to care for themselves, so the elites need to step in and take care of them. Blacks are too stupid to get an ID, so there can be no voter id checks. Women are too stupid to change their DLs so we'll just assume their name is correct. Minorities can't get into college the old fashioned way so we'll save them a few seats, qualified or not. When will your wards wake up and see how little regard the left has for them, other than being pawns in their grand scheme? All they want is their vote, any way they can get it, then shut up and let us tell you what you need.

    The only purpose for a Voter ID law is to suppress votes under the guise of combating the mythical voter fraud dragon...everyone knows that...and those who say different are lying or simple-minded.

    @Food4thoughts OK.....how is proving who you are a suppression?
    The expense?(make it free to anyone under the 200% poverty mark)
    The transportation?(most areas have very cheap to free public transportation, including to little 18,000 pop. podunk town I live in)
    The hassle?(life is a hassle...next)
    The documents?(see above)
    Just how is it "unethical" and/or "suppression"......
