The National Voter Registration Act of 1993
A July 2009 guide to disability rights laws published by the U.S. Department of Justice includes a section on the NVRA, aka the Motor Voter Act. “One of the basic purposes of the act is to increase the historically low registration rates of minorities and persons with disabilities that have resulted from discrimination,” the guide says. “The Motor Voter Act requires all offices of state-funded programs that are primarily engaged in providing services to persons with disabilities to provide all program applicants with voter registration forms, to assist them in completing the forms, and to transmit completed forms to the appropriate State official.”
To assist agencies in complying with the Motor Voter Act, DHHS published the Agency Voter Registration Manual. According to the manual, each service provider “must offer the voter registration form at first contact or upon renewal of services. The purpose of the new law is to make the voter registration process more simple and accessible.”
If a client claims to be registered, “note the fact in the transaction record and move on,” the guide states. “If he/she is not registered and declines to register at that time, ask him/her to sign the declination portion of the voter registration form. If he/she refuses, you should print the customer’s name and date of birth, initial the declination, and print the transaction date.”

A new South Carolina law that generally requires voters to show photo identification does not discriminate against racial minorities and can go into effect beginning in 2013, a federal court ruled on Wednesday, according to SC Attorney Alan Wilson.
Wilson issued the following statement in response to the United States District Court for the District of Columbia’s ruling in South Carolina v. United States.
“Today’s ruling by the three judge panel is a major victory for South Carolina and its election process. It affirms our voter ID law is valid and constitutional under the Voting Rights Act. The fact remains, voter ID laws do not discriminate or disenfranchise; they ensure integrity at the ballot box.
“This ruling also affirms South Carolina’s voter ID law should have been pre-cleared by the U.S. Justice Department.
“We will work diligently to implement this law for all future elections.”
Romney’s closing statement…..
Thank you Jim and Mr. President, thank you for tuning in this evening.
(to the Romney show)
Take a drink every time…….
Obama finishes a sentence without stuttering
Obama says I, me or my
Obama says it’s Bush’s fault
Obama tells a lie (this is a dangerous one, could be drunk in the opening statement)
Obama says you didn’t build that
Obama says illegals are people too
Add yours to the list, if you’re sober enough.
Obama’s free cellphone scam…..
And this is what’s wrong with out country, stupid friggin’ people. If you remember, the same thing was done back in the ’08 election, these same idiots were interviewed only Sarah Palin was portrayed as Obama running mate and they loved her until they were told, after the fact, that she was not his running mate but actually on the other side. We can only hope they don’t vote again this time around.
We’ve all discussed how we wouldn’t be surprised if Obama staged an event to postpone the election, give some thought to this, is it possible that the guy who made The Video works for Obama and knew that this video would upset the Muslim world and therefore provoking an event, he purportedly has a long history with the Feds?
