    HtS,
    Kinko's has not been around for about 15 years.

    My late parents who lived outside of St. Anna, Wisconsin would have been hard put to find a photocopy place. My dad shouldn't have been driving in his 80's, but did make short trips to a grocery store. I defy you to find any place to make photocopies nearby.

    Incidentally my parents lived in the heart of Amish Country in fact their old house was bought by an Amish family. If you follow Sheboygan Road east out of St. Anna you might notice Anderson Ct. about a mile away.

    My dad had a flip phone but never a smart phone. They never had a computer. No internet access. When I visited I had to literally stand outside in a field to call from my phone.

    Just curious. How many years back are you talking.

    In Pennsylvania, even today, if your parents are already registered, all they'd have to do is sign a mail-in ballot in a way that can be generously deemed to match their original signature from the time they registered to vote. Sadly, for you Dems, though, they can only cast one ballot each. Here, in Pennsylvania, the county will even take the initiative in offering them the mail-in ballot if they choose to vote in that way.

    These laws the GOPs are proposing are not designed to make it difficult to vote, only to make it difficult to cheat...

    ...and a majority of voters in both parties support voter ID.

    My dad died in 2017.

    Google a map of that area and show me any place that he could have gone to get a photocopy. My mother was the registrar or some similar title of their little township. She was in charge of the elections. Their polling station was just about a mile away.

    2017. So did my dad, btw.

    That's why people are laughing at Kammy's ranting.

    First of all, Fed Ex bought out Kinko's almost 20 years ago.

    Second, for about a decade here in Pennsylvania people have been using their phone to take a picture of their picture ID. Heck, it's even accepted by police stops. In fact, it was during a traffic stop that a member of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Constabulary advised me to take pictures of my IDs.

    For a long time, no one anywhere I know of has had to make a Xerox of anything...

    Let's stay on your point. You presumably consider yourself smart. I told you where my parents lived. Find a place where they could have had a photocopy made anywhere anywhere near where they lived.

    Curt,

    Every post office I've been in for DECADES has had a copier in its lobby placed there for the convenience of its patrons.

    I'm going to stretch out on a limb and assume that your dad had a checking account at a bank. I can't imagine a bank that wouldn't be happy to make a few copies for a valued customer, almost certainly at no charge.

    And, having been a part of institutionalized religion for many years, it was a normal thing for me to make copies for church attenders at no cost. (I recall that you were an acolyte at an Episcopal Church in an earlier life.)

    And, if there's an Office of Aging in his county, based on my experience here, an Office of Aging, probably volunteer, would have come to your dad's door, picked up the documents he needed copied, copied them, returned them to him personally, and, again, almost certainly at the expense of the office of aging.

    I have never seen a public photocopier in a post office. We don't have one in our local PO. My parents bank was several miles away. I don't know they did much in-person banking. I would feel awkward asking MY bank to make photocopies. My parents stopped attending church years ago.

    So even you, a supposedly smart person, couldn't find a photocopy place in or near St. Anna. You undermined your own claim.

    Curt,

    We have made copies in numerous post offices over the years. It's commonplace here...and, probably, Wisconsin, too!

    I've found bank employees happy to provide a little extra service at the drop of a hat. Honestly, having interacted with you for these many years, it's difficult for me to imagine you feeling awkward about much, let alone asking an employee of your local bank for a minor favor.

    And, you conveniently ignored my mention of the office of aging...and, for that matter the many services that federal, state and local governments go out of their way to provide aging citizens.

    It's hard to imagine that your father was as destitute of human support as you suggest. If there's even remote truth in what you've claimed, my heart goes out to you and your dad for his existence in his final years.

    Having said that, your dad, as you described him, is one in what?, 10,000?, 100 000!!!!!?

    And, that's among the reasons the overwhelming majority of Americans support voter IDs.

    the office of aging (or whatever it was called) is in the city of Sheboygan, which as about 25 or 30 miles away. They occasionally dropped in on my parents, but they didn't provide photocopy services.

    The point is once a person has registered to vote, why should a person need to run around, ask for favors and jump through hoops to vote? I registered to vote one time, about 40 years ago and I haven't had to do anything but drop my ballot into the drop box since.

    Republicans and yes, itís even possible that some disturbed Democrat or Independent can, as an individual, indeed try to commit voter fraud in order to swing an election and insure that their candidate gets the most votes. Most know that it would be a pointless and dangerous endeavor since it is a serious crime with dire penalties, and if, somehow, someone was able to get away with it, their vote would likely be canceled by someone doing the same thing on the other side, which is why that kind of crime is so rare and insignificant.

    Preventing legal voters from voting by passing laws making it more difficult for selected voters to exercise their right to vote is something that actually could work. This is the strategy that Republicans are using and perfecting today. Itís something that has been used for years throughout our history.

    Holy Cow, Curt. I don't know what the reality is, but I agree. I think every Republican does!

    And, certainly, I'm no expert on Wisconsin voting law, but this sounds unreasonable to me...by a long shot!

    Here, once a citizen has registered, they have to place their signature on their mail-in ballot or, if they vote at the polls, they have to sign in at the precinct, show valid ID. I'd have thought the procedure would be the same, or close to it anywhere.

    I certainly hope you are misunderstanding Wisconsin's voting rules. What you are describing is INSANE!

    isle,

    Please link to reliable sources of information that supports your claim. Let me just say this about that, and let me make this perfectly clear: Where this is true, I 100% agree with you.

    But, apart from the Jim Crow laws, passed by DEMS, I'm not aware of any such laws...passed by GOPs.

    Honestly, I haven't seen copiers in Post office boxes either. Either way, Curt is still saying that whitefolk (including hisself) is too stupid to fighr it out.
    Most people I know from 70 on down have scanners in their houses because it's just easier. All ranchers I know do. They also have computers in their trucks to figure out humidity levels in their fields and where to put irrigation heads. Yeah, they're just stupid hicks.


  14. by Curt Anderson on July 14, 2021 10:26 pm
    Olde Dude,
    Like Oregon, Colorado has vote by mail. Maybe entirely like Oregon. Do you have to include a photocopy of ID when you mail-in your ballot? Do you see any point to it?


  15. by Curt Anderson on July 14, 2021 10:39 pm
    Also OD, did I ever mention my mother was born and raised in Salida? She was the youngest of seven sisters. No brothers. Four of my aunts lived in Englewood where we visit nearly every Summer from my home state of Wisconsin. And always fishing in Monarch (Pass? Park?) near Salida.

    I don't know where Kammy's idea that copies are necessary came from. There's never an occasion in Pennsylvania where a copy would be necessary, even in registering to vote, as far as I know, though I registered a looooooong time ago.

    And, of course OD is correct. Anyone of any age who's not a curmudgeon either can make a copy or have one made with little issue.
