    NAACP President says "access" but he really means we should make voter fraud easier. Same-day registration floods/overwhelms the polls and prevents officials from properly vetting the credentials of each voter. He knows that, and that's why he wants it.

    If someone should show their ID to buy booze or join a union, or then there is no hardship in producing one's ID to show that one qualifies to vote/register. If you don't agree with this, then you want to enable voter fraud.

    I wonder if the NAACP President, or even the head of the local NAACP chapter has noticed that the elected Utah Republican Party Chairman, former state Senator James Evans, is an African-American?

    Voting rights and access are there for any Utahn to use, if they want to. Please spare us the recycled lectures on how blacks were discriminated against decades or centuries ago, or in far away places, because those facts no longer exist in Utah.

    Today, the black "civil rights" leadership seems to be focused on "separate but more equal" and promotion of programs to exclusively benefit blacks, not equal rights for all.

    I think that Dr. Martin Luther Kin's appeal for his children to be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin would be opposed by today's "civil rights" leadership who seem to be focused on a different agenda.

    It's a right of the people to know that those voting have a right to do so.
