(HorizonPost.com) – Throughout the 2020 election cycle, debate raged over requiring ID for a person to cast their ballot. Monmouth University just released poll results that asked the American people for their opinions. It turns out that an overwhelming majority are actually in favor of would-be voters having documentation proving they are who they claim to be.
Most Americans think early voting should be made easier and voters should be required to show photo identification when casting a ballot, according to the latest survey from Monmouth University Poll.https://t.co/2pEkSOhn06

The report, released on June 21, reveals approximately 80% of their sample favors requiring photo identification such as a driver’s license or state ID card to vote. When broken down along party lines, the numbers become 91% of Republicans, 87% of independents, and 62% of Democrats supporting the notion.
Certain high-profile Liberals are exhibiting their well-known abilities to change their opinion when they put their finger in the air to check which way the wind is blowing. One-time gubernatorial candidate and former member of the state House of Representatives in Georgia, Stacey Abrams, supports the case.
An article in the Washington Post, also from June 21, quoted Abrams saying it’s “one of the fallacies of Republican talking points… No one has ever objected to having to prove who you are to vote.” However, in 2018 after losing her run at the governorship, she likened the idea just to be a scare tactic to keep Black voters away from the ballot box. Whatever the reason for switching sides on the issue, if the outcome is a more secure electoral process, it ends up being a positive point.
