Voter fraud is not a real issue, it doesn't happen in an even remotely, infinitesimally significant manner to be a problem.

Voter disenfranchisement is a huge issue that happens every election and robs thousands of eligible citizens of their right to vote, nearly always in the last 12 years at the behest of Republican party operatives doing everything they can to prevent poor people from voting.

Voter ID laws are about one thing and one thing only: stopping the poor, especially black and Latino voters, from voting because they overwhelmingly vote Democrat. It's not about preventing voter fraud.
But why can they not get an ID if there are systems in place to help facilitate it, what is the problem then?
