Editorial comments: Photo ID's for voting

The following comments were generated from an editorial by FOX6 WBRC-TV General Manager Lou Kirchen, which first aired on Tuesday, March 29, 2011.

Calvin from Birmingham

I find nothing wrong with showing ID to make sure you're the right person. And that you are legal and you have a right to vote.

Paulette from Birmingham

No, I don't think you should have ID to vote because you've got elderly like 80 who don't have ID.


I think 100% that we should. I mean why shouldn't we? It's just one way to make sure we're who we say we are. I mean, I wouldn't care if they asked for my birth certificate.


I am strongly opposed to having a picture ID, (at the) voting place and one more stumbling block and intimidation....

Sharp from Jasper

I think anyone who is opposed to having a picture ID in order to vote must have something to hide.

Norma from Clay,

We have so many illegal people in this country. So, yeah, I agree that everyone should show their driver's license with their photo.
