    They aren't just making it hard for Black people... They are making it hard for everyone. I wonder what their motivation is for this foolishness....

    True, it doesn't make any sense whatsoever.

    I think it's being done to cut down on the number of voters in typically democratic counties. Also, to force potential voters to register at the Voter Registration Office or by mail. Voters need to become more vigilant.

    We live in a republican area. Obvious by the candidate poster in their yards.
    My spouse had lost his Voter ID card and missed a local vote. He received a letter in the mail within a two week period questioning if he still lived in the district and to re register. Which he did. He received a new card within two weeks. We are not republicans. I choose to think it's where we live.
    Strange.

    I was shocked to know where I lived when I saw signs for Sarah Palin and John McCain and next mitt Romney. I wanted to move. It was scary. I looked up the profile of the area and learned its 15% Black on one side and less on the other side. (Metro Atlanta is broke up like a puzzle). Any where you live in Atlanta you will see Blacks.

    Larry Wilmore Slams Alabama For DMV Closings In Mostly Black Counties

    Larry Wilmore blasted Alabama for making it much harder for black residents to get photo IDs after passing a state law requiring voters to show a photo ID. Of the 10 counties with the highest number of non-white registered voters, eight of them will lose their department of motor vehicles office, and every county where black voters make up 75 percent or more will see its office closed,Wilmore said. “Seriously, Alabama?

    It was the stroke of the pen that gave Coloured Folks the right to vote and freedom . It will be the stroke of the pen to erase that right . Systematically it is happening in our faces and Obama cant do anything about it .

    Until Black folk organize politically, in much greater numbers than the current Black Lives Matter movement, you are absolutely correct, our voting rights will erode away.

    If you ask me do you really think they gave the right to vote to us ? To become president don't you only need 7 electoral votes to win the nomination for presidency in the USA ? SEVEN votes to win the presidency ?
