Council adopts city ID cards

ELKHART — A resolution to create a municipal identification card for city residents has been adopted by the Elkhart City Council.

The city ID – called PRIDE (Proud Resident ID for Elkhart) – allows the cardholder to show who they are and where they live. The cards will be used for parents to attend events at their children’s school, interact with law enforcement as a victim or a witness to a crime or present to health care professionals.

There is no Rampant voter fraud Taken place...that was the story trump wanted you to believe when he said millions voted illegally....that actual numbers are just a handful nation wide..voter fraud just isn’t a thing..it’s what do they say...fake? Voter suppression is real...you only have to look at what happened to GA. Black residents waited HOURS and some all day to vote...in a pandemic..while the white counter folk had no problems...that is voter suppression...some states wouldn’t even allow mail in voting even during a pandemic....that is voter suppression...enough for you? And those saying look at all the dead people registered to vote..see? Voter fraud is real....NOT, they are registered, they are dead and not voting...BIG difference.

So it is still your opinion that there is voter suppression.You were not in Georgia to witness it. Stay in your basement and be like Hiden Biden.

Turn off fox entertainment and watch real journalist. This was covered be the media...and respectable journalist...not entertainers and commentators....HUGE difference.

So Joe! Tell us what happened in Georgia! Georgia law says you need not show a reason to vote by mail. No need your skin color or reason! It's the law Joe! Why would only black residents have to wait so long? And those "white counter folk"....no problem! Sounds a wee bit racist there Joe. But maybe I shouldn't read between the lines!

Joe, please turn off fox entertainment channel and listen to news channels...it was covered by the media and journalist. Voters had to wait hours to vote in minority sections of town while their white counterparts did not have the same issue... Again, it was covered by the media and journalist....perhaps fox entertainment chose not to cover it since it would make their pundits look like the propagandist they are...

I am concerned about the use of the I.d. cards for voting. Vote fraud seems to be a widespread problem nationwide.

Seven, the MUCH bigger problem is voter suppression. It makes you ponder why some politicians are determined to keep qualified voters from voting. It's pretty easy to see why they don't want people, or at least certain people from voting.

Tell me what voter suppression is! Are you telling us proof of citizenship or residency is suppression?

sidearm

That is just your opinion Navy. There is no voter suppression. If you are not responsible enough to get a state approved ID then you obviously don’t want to vote or travel or get a library card or a bank account. The list goes on and on but yet you parrot the left’s complaint and repeat it like a good soldier.

What cost is involved and what proof must a person show of residency? If there is no proof of residency then it would not be a valid proof of citizenship!

Will these i.d. cards be used as identification when voting? The Indiana BMV issues valid i.d. cards.

They shouldn't seven. I think a state issued ID is required
