|9/18: Congress Aims to Require Voter ID H.R. 4844
Released 19 September 2006  By anonymous
Congress Aims to Require Voter ID H.R. 4844
This week (9/20 Wed and 9/21 Thurs), the House of Representatives is poised to consider the "Voter ID bill" H.R. 4844, the Federal Election Integrity Act of 2006.
The VOTER ID bill aims to decrease the number of citizens able to vote by requiring all citizens to show proof of citizenship in order to vote. Millions of Americans, who do not have the identification and proof of citizenship that the bill requires -- the elderly, the disabled, Native Americans and other minorities- will be profoundly impacted by this legislation. H.R. 4844 will do far more to suppress turnout and intimidate voters than to prevent voter fraud, as the proponents of the Voter ID bill claim. Millions of Americans will be denied their right to vote because the House Republicans are rushing this bill to floor to address a problem that does not really exist.
