Post vote to
Our entire democracy depends on the integrity of our ballot box. If even one person is allowed to cast a fraudulent vote by misrepresenting their identity at the polling place, then that fraudulent vote has effectively cancelled out the vote of a law abiding citizen and destroyed that citizen's opportunity to participate in our democratic system. We require photo IDs to board planes, write checks, even rent DVDs. It only seems right that we would afford the elections that produce the leaders of our republic the same level of protection. HB 16 seeks to do that by requiring one form of photo ID or two forms of non-photo ID to participate in an election in Texas.
