New rules and regulations for casting your vote are on the way and in some places are already in effect for the upcoming elections.
The Republicans say they have created the new regulations to tamp down voter fraud and ensure honest elections as we move forward.
The Democrats say minorities, students, the poor and disabled are the ones who will be effected the most. They also claim that these are the ones most likely to vote Democratic in the upcoming elections.
Some states have enacted new rules to prove citizenship at the polling stations. That in itself is not all bad but does stink to some of the "Citizenship tests" that were administered in some southern states in our recent history.
Several states have enacted a rule requiring that those who turn out to cast ballots have a state issued photo ID on them when they report to the polling station to prove they are who they say they are.
Many states offer Free photo ID cards, but the challenge according to some Democrats will be getting all of those who wish to exercise the voting right to the motor vehicle departments to get the ID itself.
Be prepared and know your states current voting rules and your right to vote as a citizen in good standing.
Don't pass up on your voting rights because you have not done your homework, checked your local rules and regulations and ensured that you are able to cast your vote when the time comes.
