The Queen of England is supposed to announce new voter ID requirements in the UK in an effort to tackle voter fraud.
The UK has been considered a progressive country for a few decades, but somehow the country is moving towards getting voter ID laws before the United States.
From PJ Media:
“Britons will have to show photo ID to vote in future general elections,” reports The Guardian. And the reason is obvious: to combat voter fraud.
The Queen is expected to formally announce the proposal in a speech on Tuesday.
Just like in the United States, this commonsense approach to fighting voter fraud is being met with accusations of racism from its opponents, who apparently think minorities are incapable of acquiring identification like everyone else.
That’s not all.
The voter ID requirement is one of a number of voting reform proposals, including one “which will also include a limit on the number of postal votes that can be handed in on behalf of others,” which is being justified by ministers “as a way to reduce the risk of electoral fraud.”
For years many in the US have raised concern over the potential for voter fraud and demanded that voters show ID when they go to cast their vote. These proposals are constantly shut down under the guise that they are racist and are made to oppress minority groups.
