Voice of the People
Author: BobR    Date: 07/27/2011 12:44:45

Ask anyone what they think their greatest right is for having a voice in our country. Some may quote the First Amendment, saying its "freedom of speech", or "freedom of the press", or the right "peaceably to assemble" or "petition the government for a redress of grievances" (whether via phone, mail, or direct protest). I submit that the greatest right we have for speaking our voices is the right to vote.

What is both sad alarming, though, is the capriciousness with which that right is treated. How is it that states can deny someone this most basic right after being convicted of a felony, even after "paying their debt to society"? Where is that in the Constitution?

Women and non-white males were not afforded that right initially, and required changes to our Consitution. It wasn't until 1920 and the 19th Amendment that women got the right to vote. And it wasn't 1964 and the 24th Amendment that everyone was given freedom from poll taxes designed to deny that right to poor (black) voters:
The right of citizens of the United States to vote in any primary or other election for President or Vice President, for electors for President or Vice President, or for Senator or Representative in Congress, shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any state by reason of failure to pay any poll tax or other tax.

In retrospect, the amendment should have ended at "or any state". It is the poll tax aspect that has allowed states run by Republicans to use "voter ID" laws to disenfranchise poor voters, most of whom tend to vote Democratic. The situation in Wisconsin is a perfect example of this:
Republican Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's administration is moving forward with a plan that would close as many as 10 driver's license offices only months before a new law will require voters to present a photo ID before casting a ballot.

On May 25, Walker signed the voter photo ID bill which mandates voters present a driver's license, state ID, military ID, passport, naturalization papers or tribal ID before casting their ballots.
[...]
Democratic Wisconsin state Rep. Andy Jorgensen told The Associated Press that Walker appeared to be targeting Democratic districts with his decision to shut down 10 Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) offices.
[...]
But Walker's administration has denied the decision was political, saying the closures were part of an effort to expand operating hours at other DMV offices.

Those "other DMV offices" are in Republican districts. These laws pass constitutional muster because a person can get a voter ID free of charge. Of course - they need to be able to get to the office and fill out the paperwork, and then there's the burden of proof to get the ID in the first place.

These tactics are similar to those used by Kathleen Harris of Florida in the 2000 election to purge blacks (Democrats) from the voter rolls, thus denying them the right to vote, and tipping Florida far enough in the direction of George Bush to affect a win in that state. Florida is also one of those states that denies the right to vote to the aforementioned felons, and that was the rationale used to purge the rolls in the first place. If the state could not deny them that right, then they would not have an excuse to purge them from the rolls.

Perhaps it's time for a Constitutional amendment to address those pesky extra words in the 24 Amendment:
The right of citizens of the United States to vote in any primary or other election for President or Vice President, for electors for President or Vice President, or for Senator or Representative in Congress, shall not be denied, abridged, or hampered by the United States or any state for any reason.

And read as well. I think the Johnny Benchian finger prints of ALEC are all over these voter suppression laws. Our wacky Florida legislature passed one almost identical to the Wisconsin law this past session. Of course there was high minded rhetoric about "preventing voter fraud," which we all know is bullshit.

Sad and excellent Blog, Bobber.

It's a lot like Abortion clinics -- they are legal, but States can prevent new ones from Opening up. People in the NE are by and large lucky that they can go to one, but imagine living in Kansas, for example. If a poor woman has to drive across state, and then is told to wait 2 days, That is 2 days at a motel, and quite possibly 3 or more days she won;t get paid at her job. (If she's not fired)

This is what these republicans do -- the disenfranchise people from having access to their rights as citizens-- These rights are easy to access if you have money. What happens to the people that can't drive? the people that have low paying jobs in Wisconsin -- that is why this is essentially a poll tax.







Comment by wickedpam on 07/27/2011 13:37:24
I have to say that when I first registered to vote way back in the 80's in NC all I did was sit down at the card table with the a nice older lady and fill out some paper work. I don't remember if I got a card or anything back then but I most certainly didn't have a drivers license when I showed up to vote at the fire station down the road from one of my fave record stores (School Kids Records). I think I may have showed my school id but there was no fuss.

When I moved to VA, I again sat down with a nice little old lady at her card table in the mall and filled out the paper work. A few days later I got my voters registration card in the mail. And that is all I produce when I vote. There's no pix id no asking for other proof that I am who I am and I live where I live.

These days I don't see those nice little old ladies and their card tables. I'm think we need to get back to them if we want be able to use our right to vote.

Well that explains my experience with voting and all.

I just don't get the hang up on photo ids - its not like you can pass you registration card to someone else and they can use your name to vote - they check off your name and you have to sign that you were there



Comment by Raine on 07/27/2011 13:59:15
and over in Tennessee (this is from April so I am looking to what has transpired there)
State Attorney General Bob Cooper has issued a legal opinion that a Republican-led effort to require photo identification to vote would violate the Tennessee and U.S. constitutions.

Cooper said in the opinion released Wednesday that without a provision to supply voters with free ID cards, the measure "unduly burdens the right to vote" and would constitute a poll tax.



Comment by TriSec on 07/27/2011 13:59:46
See now, I've never had to show any kind of ID whatsoever, either to register, vote, or even as a candidate to pull or submit nomination papers.

However, in this state there's a persistent rumor that the Jury Pool comes from the voter rolls; I know a significant number of people that have never registered to vote because they don't want to serve on a jury.

Completely false, btw.

Even if they're free (and they generally are), there's still the burden of getting one.

Read this blog. In Tennessee, in order to get a photo ID, It appears you need a photo ID.


Comment by Raine on 07/27/2011 14:43:44
The other thing I find amazing is that in States like Georgia and Tennessee, it cost the states a lot of money to pay for and print those ID cards.

This gets back to something I've been saying about the GOP for a while now. They are economic liberty for the rich. Beyond economic liberty, the are the party of restricting peoples rights: abortion, voting, marriage you name it the GOP wants to limit your rights.

Would it be fair to say that the 24th Amendment actually overrules the 10th? I mean I was pretty sure that before the 24th -- it was the 10th that states used to create poll taxes. I thought the 24th was meant to rectify that.


Therefore, I submit that there is no change needed, I think these new ID laws are not constitutional. I know SCOTUS said photo ID laws are ok, (Indiana '08) but these laws are becoming more and more restrictive. That case in Indiana imo was poorly argued.

U.S. Olympic medalist skier commits suicide
Olympic silver medalist Jeret "Speedy" Peterson was found dead in a remote canyon in Utah in what police are calling a suicide.

Peterson, a freestyle skier who patented the so-called "Hurricane" and took second place at the Vancouver Games with it, called 911 before shooting himself, police said. The 29-year-old had been cited for drunken driving Friday in Hailey, Idaho and had pleaded not guilty.

b I guess you are correct. I suspect tho, that since 3 years have passed there could be a case that people have been disenfranchised. It could be argued from a totally different approach.

I think the ACLU probably should not have argued it as a party issue.


Comment by Will in Chicago on 07/27/2011 15:31:10
BobR, thanks for an excellent blog!

Let's remember that Reagan campaign strategist Paul Weyrich said that the political leverage of religious conservatives went up as the number of voters went down.

I think that we will see several law suits over what seems to be new versions of the poll tax. I think that Weyrich's sentiments are alive and well among his political heirs.

I could comment on people getting drunk watching grown men playing with their balls and bats. Of course, considering how the Chicago baseball teams do most years, maybe I should be glad that my Dad was indifferent to the game.

Incidentally, the annoying person on Kenny Pick's Facebook page had more to post on his claims on George Soros. I responded again.

Neither Dad nor I got into baseball. He was first generation native born, the son of Scottish-Irish immigrants. My brother-in-law is a rarity, a South Side Cubs Fan -- his Dad was a Cubs Fan. I think that for most people, you have to be raised following a sport. (Dad followed the Bears and the Jordan era Bulls. I wish I had his chili recipe.)

As for the Boston Red Sox, I sympathize with their long suffering fans and their dedication. I joke that in Chicago, the team owners meet around New Years Day to bet who can run their team into the ground first.

TriSec, this is no time to get angry. No one likes anyone when they are angry.

Only thing is the Chicago teams still get national exposure on WGN since it is the only superstation still showing baseball to a national audience still TBS relinquished the Braves to get that new MLB deal. Since WSBK, KWGN, and KTLA no longer have baseball deals, the only superstations still showing baseball are WWOR and WPIX here in New York and most of their national exposure is on Dish Network although WPIX is widely carried on Canadian cable and satellite.

Many of the superstations no longer seem to have any local presence. I would have no idea that TBS comes out of Atlanta as it now stands.

I suppose the national exposure helps the Cubs and the Sox, but it is a shame for baseball fans that it is harder to watch their games.

In the fall of 2007, TBS was finally switched to just a cable network and the Atlanta station WTBS became WPCH which runs much of the same syndicated shows and still shows the Braves plus SEC College games. Many Canadian providers carry WPCH instead of TBS because CRTC carriage requirements were as a superstation and TBS as a cable channel is not approved for Canadian distribution but in the US, WPCH is just an Atlanta station now.
