They found 33 cases. In Texas. Do you know how big Texas is? Furthermore, the fraud they are referring to isn't the type of fraud that voter ID would prevent. It's actually the type of fraud that Republicans committed in North Carolina. When Democrats say voter fraud doesn't happen they're talking about individuals showing up to vote and pretending to be someone they're not in order to vote. That's the type of voter fraud that doesn't actually happen, yet Republicans are hellbound and determined to stop because they know the extra ID requirement is most likely to sway young people, poor people, urban people, and elderly people from voting. All demographics that generally vote Democrat.
You will find absolutely no argument from Democrats when it comes to making sure that vote harvesters are in fact delivering the ballots they harvest. I can assure you that Republicans are the ones hiring these harvesters to kill votes from people they don't like far more than Democrats are.
"Those people are too stupid to produce a picture ID" isn't a very winning argument. When blacks are polled about they think that the idea that they can't get a picture ID is pretty dumb. in the meantime, individuals have also been charged with voter fraud. Most likely it's just the tip of the iceberg.
That was certainly not the case in California, where vote harvesting was increased by Democrats by an order of magnitude. Some if it was probably illegal, but it will never be uncovered.
Good thing that isn't our argument. The argument is that the process of obtaining a valid ID is incredibly burdensome and convoluted to the point where many people who don't otherwise need one for any other purpose don't bother to get one. Voting is literally the only thing they need it for. The cost associated with obtaining a valid ID in and of itself is financially burdensome than most poll taxes were back in the day, and those were ruled unconstitutional for a reason."Those people are too stupid to produce a picture ID" isn't a very winning argument.

Ahh yes, and additional right-wing site. Thank you for admitting that your original link proved nothing. Now let's start with this one. Your right wing heritage foundation had to go all the way back to 2009 just to find more than 1000 cases. Assuming an election every two years that works out to maybe 200 per election across the entire country. That works out to an average of 5 per state per election.in the meantime, individuals have also been charged with voter fraud. Most likely it's just the tip of the iceberg.
