here in georgia, in an effort to stop voter fraud, they've been trying to pass a law that says in order to vote you must show an approved photo id at the polls. i don't really see a problem with it but one judge has ruled it unconstitutional and compared it to a poll tax. i don't really think it's necessary, but i don't understand what the big problem is. the bill was sponsored by republicans and from what i can see in the papers is the only opposition was from black democrats who claim it would disenfranchise black voters somehow.
