    I don't understand the voter suppression argument. Hasn't nearly everyone had an ID since about age 16?

    A lot? Getting some kind of ID to show you are a citizen is an extremely low threshold.

    I don't buy it. What's to stop any non-citizen from walking in and voting? I've witnessed what was likely illegals voting on multiple occasions.

    Yep. Large groups of people showing up claiming to live at a certain residence. The blue hairs check their list and respond that people by the same name have already voted. The solution: let the new mystery group vote (for Democrats most assuredly.)

    Pretty solid evidence right there. You should let Donald know.

    Why? I'm not a Donald fan. In any event, what I've witnessed is more legitimate than claiming "a lot" of people can't afford (nearly) free identification, thus allowing any of the millions of illegals to walk into a polling center and vote.
