Voter ID an old joke
As a former chief elections judge and a member of the Carteret Board of Elections, and as a state certified elections official (a three-year earned course of study with examination), I am appalled at the efforts by the Republican majority to erase the achievements of the last half century regarding universal suffrage with this transparent fix for a system that is not broken.
Fifty years ago the Democratic Party was the culprit, but we have witnessed a reversal of positions for the same racial reasons – to deny minorities, older citizens, college students and other young voters their right to cast a ballot, because, statistically speaking, they generally vote Democrat.
It is a felony offense to cast a ballot by misrepresentation or to falsify registration or identity. It seldom happens.
