    Best answer: Is the Presidential election a State issue or a Country issue?

    Why should Americans' votes be divvied-up according to what State they come from? Who the President will be affects each American equally(what State that American is from has no significance), why shouldn't each Americans' vote be equal?

    Consider this: In a State like New York, that reliably casts its 29 electoral votes blue, all the red voting NYers are effectively ignored. Wouldn't it be more fair for all those ignored red NY votes to pool with all the other red votes from across the Country regardless of which State they derive?


    The intension of the Electoral College was to counter the fact that smaller States would be outweighed by the bigger States. (Well, they are smaller States, shouldn't' their influence be proportionately smaller?)
    But the Electoral College doesn't exactly solve this problem of the big States dictating to the small States. Really it just reverses the problem. Now the smaller States dictate to the bigger. How many times have we seen an election come down to the "swing" of a smaller State? Have you noticed how campaigns almost exclusively focus on small States like Iowa and New Hampshire? Why are their votes so much more important than a Texan's or a Californian's?


    So, is the Electoral College fair?

  • Who will you vote for next election? I was thinking of labour...but maybe not?

    I want them to be tougher with immigration and benefits. I don’t understand why it is in this country we are so generous with giving out handouts. We should be more like the Americans. They have a lot of pride and would rather go out and work for a living then sit at home on their bum on handouts. I don’t know how... show more
    I want them to be tougher with immigration and benefits. I don’t understand why it is in this country we are so generous with giving out handouts. We should be more like the Americans. They have a lot of pride and would rather go out and work for a living then sit at home on their bum on handouts. I don’t know how we are supposed to finance all these lazy bums in this country if we have an ageing population and not enough people working and paying tax. I know everyone is going to say that we should open our borders and allow in more immigrants into the country to work and pay tax. Unfortunately it seems as if we’re getting the wrong type of people in. How is a Orthdox Jewish family or a Somalian family with 5+ kids and on benefits any use to society here? Somalians are too lazy to work and those strict Jews that wear black and have long dangly hair down the side of their head do not really work. The women can’t mix with non Jews and the men sit at home reading dusty books all day. How about if we have a system where people can work for up to 7 years in the uk and after 7 years is up then they should go home? Anyone who arrives here and commits crime or do not bother to work should be kicked out ASAP. What do you think?

    Best answer: No. You need a state-recognized photo ID, which includes the following:
    Texas Driver License issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS)
    Texas Election Identification Certificate issued by DPS
    Texas Personal Identification Card issued by DPS
    Texas Handgun License issued by DPS
    United States Military Identification Card containing the person’s photograph
    United States Citizenship Certificate containing the person’s photograph
    United States Passport (book or card)

    If you don't have one of these, go to any DPS Drivers License offices during regular hours to get an Election Identification Certificate. Read more about getting an EIC here:
    http://www.dps.texas.gov/DriverLicense/e...

    Go here to confirm your registration:
    https://teamrv-mvp.sos.texas.gov/MVP/mvp...

    On the "results' page of the above look-up, two days before the election, double check where you are allowed to vote by clicking on the election in which you want to vote. You have to double check because sometimes they close down a polling place due to an emergency and open another (or not).

  • Do you vote based on political party or judgement of character?

    Just curious to see how most people vote. Would you vote for your political party every election regardless of the candidate or do you vote based on who you'd think would be the best candidate regardless of which side they're on?

  • How do you usually vote?

    Best answer: I go to my polling place. It's a reasonably pleasant walk, about 1.5 miles round trip, so I'm getting light exercise as well.

    If the weather's bad, I drive.

  • Why are illegal immigrants allowed to vote in Commiefornia?

    Best answer: They aren't. But requiring ID doesn't stop any illegal immigrants from voting. The only voters ever stopped by a requirement to show ID have all been legal U.S. citizens, who didn't have the right type of ID for various reasons, but most of them because they didn't have enough money to get a voter... show more
    Best answer: They aren't. But requiring ID doesn't stop any illegal immigrants from voting. The only voters ever stopped by a requirement to show ID have all been legal U.S. citizens, who didn't have the right type of ID for various reasons, but most of them because they didn't have enough money to get a voter ID, and some of them had valid IDs that just weren't acceptable for voting.

    You don't really need the form either, because the mere fact that someone shows up at an in-person polling place proves citizenship much more conclusively than any ID ever could. If a person wants to vote illegally, then they do it by mail or absentee ballot. It's much easier for an illegal immigrant to get an ID than to get an illegal voter to go to a polling place.
