Soros-Backed Efforts Challenging Va. Voter ID Law Rejected By Court

A federal appeals court on Tuesday issued an opinion saying that Virginia’s voter identification law is constitutional and does not violate the Voting Rights Act.

In the unanimous opinion issued by the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, the court affirmed that Virginia’s voter identification law “does not sweep away all election rules that result in a disparity in the convenience of voting.” Under Virginia’s elections laws, “every registered voter in Virginia has the full ability to vote when Election Day arrives,” the court continued.

The lawsuit against Virginia’s voter identification law was filed in early 2015 and was dismissed in May. The plaintiffs challenged the constitutionality of the law by alleging that it violated Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act and disproportionally hurt minority voters.

Absolutely! The democrats have created the narrative that the ability to acquire a government issued ID is somehow disenfranchising people. That's B.S., And isulting to blacks and Hispanics. They're not retarded, just poor.
I witnessed people lining up for free Obama phones on South blvd. But, when the One Stop Job Shop showed up.....crickets.... If they want something, they'll get it. The democrats DON' T want them to have ID to sway elections their way.

That law disproportionately hurts illegals

There is no proof, none, that acquiring a government-issued personal picture I.D. is an insurmountable task.
If a person is able to vote, that person is able to get an I.D. with minimal difficulty or expense. Those "difficulties" (isolated and insignificant as they probably are) need to be formally identified to determine their nature and scope, and officially resolved to finally put this issue to bed once and for all.
