“This card won’t do it.”
In the opinion of a Clemson woman, the state’s effort to devise a card to combat voter fraud is a dollar short—-actually a lot of dollars short. Eleanor Hare says South Carolina simply did not invest enough to come up with a card that can fool a counterfeiter. Hare, a member of the League of Women Voters, applied and received a South Carolina voter photo card, and she’s not impressed. “It is really not a very good ID. It’s an ID that just about anybody with a computer and a printer can counterfeit,” she tells 96.3/WGOG NEWS. And yet that’s what the state sought to do. Hare is unsure if many of the people who lack a photo ID are applying for the state’s official card.
