On Tuesday, Republican Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon signed a bill into law that now requires state residents to provide identification when they go to cast a ballot in an election.
The bill called HB0075, stipulates that Wyoming voters must show “acceptable identification” when voting in person and that “in-person voters can be challenged for failure to show acceptable identification,” when voting either on Election Day or during early voting.
State Representative Chuck Gray (R) was the primary sponsor of the bill, which nearly two-thirds of the Wyoming legislature co-sponsored.
“Today’s signing of my Voter ID legislation is a victory for the citizens of Wyoming,” Gray said on Tuesday, as reported by the Cowboy State Daily. “It is a necessary function of our Republic to provide our citizens with confidence that our elections are secure, fair, and valid. I am proud that we were able to meet this important milestone for Wyoming.”
Forms of identification that include a valid Wyoming driver’s license, a US passport, a Medicaid or Medicare insurance card, will all be acceptable under the new law.
“You really have every available type of identification to be used in this case, so no one has to feel like there’s an ID they can’t get,” Wyoming Secretary of State Ed Buchanan said during a Senate committee meeting last week. “One of the important things I emphasized early on this was in no way disenfranchising any voters.”
Some people on social media are already saying that hardly anyone lives in Wyoming, so they must all know each other. Idiotic comments aside, voter ID is about more than that.
In every state, dead people and people who moved out of the state remain on voter rolls. Democrats are famous for finding out voter registration information for those people and use it to vote in their name, either in person or by absentee or mail-in voting. That type of voter fraud made up the bulk of voter fraud cases during the 2020 election, at least according to the testimony of whistleblowers and more importantly data experts who analyzed the 2020 voter data.
Queue screaming Democrats.
Every time someone attempts to purge the dead and non-residents from the voter rolls, a screaming Democrat will pop up shouting “VOTER SUPPRESSION!” Democrats know that the more states that have voter ID, the fewer elections they will win.
Wyoming law prior to now has always required people to show proper identification when they go to register to vote, and not when they go to vote in person. Think of how many dead people and non-residents have voted because of that. Not anymore, at least not until Democrats figure out how to scam the system.
HB0075 goes into effect starting on July 1 and it will not apply to absentee voting, so you can bet the farm that absentee voting is what Democrats will switch to in order to cheat in future elections. Remember, give the Democrats an inch and they’ll steal an election.
After the 2020 election, a lot of states are going to be similarly doing election integrity laws just like what happened in Georgia. Georgia received an enormous amount of backlash and it was patently obvious that the Democrats were lying their tails off about voter suppression and claims that the new election integrity laws Georgia passed recently were akin to Jim Crow. Democrat lies about the new law caused Major League Baseball to pull the All-Star Game out of Atlanta with the MLB claiming they did it because after the new election integrity bill was signed into law it was “the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport.” Even though there is nothing racist or suppressive to black people in the new law, the MLB moved the game from a 51% black city and gave it to the 91% white city, Dever, Colorado. The potential of $100 million in revenues for the surrounding Atlanta area would have gone to black-owned businesses, and black communities in Atlanta are now gone because the MLB caved to the Woke Supremacy’s hysterical lies.
I believe the Left went so nuts over the Georgia law just to send a message to other states about what will happen to them if they follow suit. It didn’t work. Wyoming is now a voter ID state and hopefully, many more states will follow.
