Read what you actually linked instead of relying on propaganda.

Colorado requires voters to present non-photo identification while voting while Georgia requires photo identification or government document.

Colorado is also more flexible in the types of identification you can use.

Not sure how that is more restrictive.

“For f**k’s sake. Colorado does NOT “require” non-photo ID’s to vote. Jesus Christ. Quit making shit up. All but six of the sixteen options have photos.”

Ah, that is the miscommunication. Thank you.

Yes! Six of the options available to identify a voter in Colorado do not have photos. This is correct. What I’m saying is every identification in Georgia DOES require some kind of photo identification. Which is why Colorado is more flexible and not more restrictive as the OP’s meme claims.

I’m not saying none of Colorado’s identification requirements don’t have photos. Merely that photo IDs are not required such as but not limited to provide a copy of a current (within the last 60 days) utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document that shows the name and address of the elector, a Certificate of Degree of Indian or Alaskan Native Blood, a valid Medicare or Medicaid card issued by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, a certified copy of a U.S. birth certificate, or a certified documentation of naturalization. All of those are not an option in Georgia because they don’t have a photo to help verify the voter when they show up to vote. Which, honestly, is understandable.

“Let me put it to you this way:

If conservatives cured world hunger, you’d complain that the food was too salty. If liberals served up the very same meal, you’d go back for seconds. Then, you’d ask for the recipe.”

This has nothing to do with our argument and borders on a concession on your part. I recommend you leave the ad hominems and strawman fallacies on the playground. I don’t hold them against you. I just think you can do better. And I don’t mean with insults. You’d be less frustrated if you actually knew what you were talking about. You do know some things but I don’t think you’ve applied the knowledge critically. Not here, at least. But I mean it. You can do it. It just takes time and practice. And patience. With yourself and others. Please, try.

Anyway. You’re correct again! I’m always happy to point out your triumphs as well as your errors. I wouldn’t expect you to do so with me but it is clear you’d rather be angry with me than let me constructively critique where you might be wrong.

Georgia does allow you to vote with an expired ID. This is an important fact! It really takes the teeth out of the liberals argument that it makes it difficult for poor and black voters to vote. The next time they call Georgia’s voting law racist voting suppression, hurl that one at them. If they continue to escalate in insults, then you got them.

And yes, Colorado doesn’t accept expired or otherwise non-valid driver’s license. However, if you can provide a copy of a current (within the last 60 days) utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document that shows the name and address of the elector, a Certificate of Degree of Indian or Alaskan Native Blood, a valid Medicare or Medicaid card issued by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, a certified copy of a U.S. birth certificate, a certified documentation of naturalization, or
a valid student identification card; then you can vote. All of those are not an option in Georgia.

So, I wouldn’t say Colorado’s voting laws are more restrictive.

Especially when you can register the same day to vote in Colorado and not in Georgia.

Do you understand or would you rather continue to concede with only petty insults?

This is a debate, not an argument. 🤦🏼‍♂️ And this has everything to do with what we are debating. You are so much of a leftist sycophant that you’d rather eat your young than concede a point. Colorado is as white as the snow that engulfs it. It also mails every single registered voter a ballot. Every single one. So the whole voter ID photo thing is a moot point.

What type of ID requires no photo in Colorado?

A current and valid utility bill that is in your name and with your current address. But the bill is normally only in one person’s name in a family, so that doesn’t allow an 18 year old living at home to use it to. vote. And when you open a utility account, they ask for a current valid ID.

A bank statement which requires a valid photo ID to open as an adult.

A government check, paycheck, or other government document that shows the name and address of the elector and which you need an ID get said payment and to qualify for as an adult.

A Certificate of Degree of Indian or Alaskan Native Blood - must be confirmed via blood and birth right (and makes up a minuscule portion of Colorado’s electorates and is stupid to even debate here).

A valid Medicare or Medicaid card issued by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Which is obtained via your social security card and birth certificate or naturalization paperwork, income verification as well as current and former spousal information.

A certified copy of a U.S. birth certificate for the elector.

Certified documentation of naturalization which actually requires a photo attached to it so there is only 5, not 6.

So, in reality, you need a photo ID to vote in Colorado, or a photo ID to obtain the ID not needing a photo ID.

But you keep doing you.

It's more a misunderstanding than a debate. I'm just not sure where you're confused.

You also forgot about the birth certificate. Which I somehow doubt is a photo ID.

For someone who claims the voter ID photo is moot, you sure do go a long way to prove that it's a valid argument.

While true, you do need an ID for all those things, save for the birth certificate, those are still alternative means of identification for whatever reason an individual may be without a photo identification on election day. And yes, even if you came to a Georgia voting site with only your birth certificate as a form of identification, as absurd as you may think it is or make it out to be, they still won't let you vote on election day in Georgia with just that. They would in Colorado, however.

More alternative means of identification in Colorado means that they are not as restrictive as Georgia. That is all I'm arguing. No more or less. I'm not even arguing that voter ID laws are racist or that I'm against them. It is amusing that you're so defensive about one simple error in a single meme, tho. But maybe I just don't get what you're confused about.

Any more questions?

Here I’ll do it for you.

Colorado does require some form of ID when voters register for the first time, and whenever they vote in person. But the state accepts 16 different forms of identification. The options include common identification cards like a driver’s license, a U.S. passport, or government employee ID — but Colorado also accepts Medicare and Medicaid cards, college IDs, utility bills, bank statements and paychecks.

In contrast, Georgia allows only six forms of ID for in-person voting.

However, Georgia specifically requires photo ID every time you vote in person. Colorado does not. Non-photo ID is acceptable to register and to vote in Colorado .

What if I don't have one of the six acceptable forms of photo ID?

The State of Georgia offers a free ID Card. An ID Card can be issued at any county registrar's office free of charge.

To receive a voter identification card at the county registrar's office, the voter must provide:

A photo identity document or approved non-photo identity document that includes full legal name and date of birth.
Documentation showing the voter's date of birth.
Evidence that the applicant is a registered voter.
Documentation showing the applicant's name and residential address.
OR
A Voter ID card can be issued at any Georgia Department of Driver Services office free of charge.
To receive a free Georgia voter identification card at Georgia Driver Services, voters must provide:
An original or certified document to prove WHO YOU ARE such as a Birth Certificate or Passport.
Your SOCIAL SECURITY CARD.
Two documents showing your RESIDENTIAL ADDRESS such as a Bank Statement or Utility Bill.
If you've had a NAME CHANGE, then you'll also need to bring a document to prove that, such as a Marriage License.
Signed Affidavit.
Evidence that you are a registered voter.

Georgia does not allow same-day voter registration.

If you did not get a voter ID, and do not have a photo ID of any kind then you cannot vote in Georgia.

Meanwhile, Colorado does not require you to use photo ID to vote. You can use a photo ID, yes but you’re not limited to that.

If you showed up to vote in Colorado with only a utility bill, you’ll be allowed to vote and register to vote as well! As they also allow same-day registration. So if you’re not registered, you can vote and register the same day.

You cannot in Georgia.

I’m not making it up.

It’s all here. If I’m wrong, just explain how I am wrong.

If all you can say is I’m making it up then I’ll accept that as a concession that I am right and you just cannot simply dispute that. And do you know what? That’s okay. No one is going to think less of you.

No one that matters anyway.

Not only are you making shit up, you’re not even getting your facts straight.

You say Georgia has ONLY six and Colorado has AT LEAST 16. Here’s the problem:

One of the six in Georgia is ANY valid state or federal government-issued photo ID.

One of the six in Georgia is ANY Valid employee photo ID from ANY branch, department, agency, or entity of the U.S. Government, Georgia, or ANY county, municipality, board, authority, or other entity of this state.

Quit making shit up.

Fantastic!

I’m not disputing anything you’re saying. Especially in the comment above.

What you’re missing is my point.

Georgia requires any photo ID to vote, and I want to be clear the ID must have a photo. The six it requires are all photo-based.

While Colorado requires non-photo IDs to vote. You can use one, yes but the key word is you’re not required to of them sixteen types of ID you can present to prove you’re an actual voter and voting in the correct district.

And just to clarify, you don’t need all six forms of ID in Georgia, nor all sixteen forms of ID in Colorado to vote. Just the one.

I’m not sure where you’re confused, exactly.

I'm laughing 'cause you anti-lefty guys are the ones who actually do that. i say this as a moderate, just observing what both ends of the spectrum do. both ends have their share of dopes who wouldn't know how to analyze data if they were paid in gold. but you guys don't just bend the claims. it's more like you start with whatever premise you think will be popular, and then you just say whatever sounds good to support it.

for example, there's another meme up now (I can't remember who posted it right now), showing how Mike Lindell "showed" "Democrat" "fraud". and it's hilarious. he's graphed data curves with different resolution and smoothness, and in two spots where the cast ballots at a given voter age in a given county seem to very slightly outnumber the possible ballots, he says "hah! Democrat fraud!", when really he can't tell from those plots what the exact numbers or degrees of error might be. and even if well graphed data did show that there were a couple dozen extra votes, he has no way of knowing if they were cast by Republicans, Dems, or both. you can see why the Supreme Court wasn't interested in hearing this kind of baloney.

ik Lefties support the big bang theory and stuff like that

that's like saying the big bang didn't happen because how small the chances were

that's like saying evolution didn't happen because we don't know who caused it

the Supreme Court. if Trump had evidence, he could have said 'here's what we have'. when they said no, it means either he had nothing, or what he had sounded pitiful to them.

now you seem like an okay guy (I assume guy 'cause 'Lord_Fondue'). you don't need to love 'lefties', but can you try to ease into neutral or something? there are times to be conservative and times to be moderate and times to be liberal. you don't have to pick a side.

“For F**k sake”

Lol, I was quoting PoorBarrytaxGuy. None of the comments you made that comment on had that mention. This one did.

imgflip.com/i/54lcx0#com10791000

Which was a response to this comment. Hence why it’s in quotation in the previous comment.

imgflip.com/i/54lcx0?nerp=1617931275#com10790824

You can even tell the comment came first due to the time stamp in the link.

Hope that clears that up for you.

Also, “Human” is an acceptable answer to what race I am. Flippant tho my answer is, I find your question just as flippant since the only mention of race was my acknowledgement of the OP’s meme being correct. So, because my argument has nothing to do with race, I refuse to volunteer that information to someone who has in four comments, shown me no real intellectual honesty by first claiming I was cursing, when I wasn’t, and then demanding I don’t lie, when I haven’t.

I simply refuse to answer the question and I think someone who is racist would genuinely care what race I am but, before you say I am calling you racist for asking what race I am, I’ll give you an out.

You can either drop it and respect my answer or you can make your point without trying to corner me into some shallow “gotcha” response. You could make it open ended and say if I’m white; I’m this, black, then this, mixed, then this... and so on but if that is the avenue you will be going down, then I must preemptively ask you this:

Isn’t that racist?
