How’s that Voter ID petition going?

You’ll note the fear-mongering (and lying) that starts the email. The truth is that Republicans and Voter ID proponents have yet to point to ANY voter fraud that would be solved by Voter ID.

That said, having about half of Harrison County’s goal to go with a little over a month left seems a bit shocking. One would have thought Harrison County would have been one of the first counties the GOP would have signed up.

Could it be that people down there are more concerned about real issues instead of wedge issues? That’s a thought.

To be honest, I would have thought they were closer to their goal. I’ve been working under the assumption that the state GOP would not fail to get Voter ID on the ballot.
