You have yet to show any real reason how this will stop any working class citizen from voting.

It's not unusual to spend an entire day to obtain, plus the expense of obtaining supporting documents.
I don't know about other states, but in FL you just have to stroll into a DMV. While not the most pleasant experience in life, its not horrible. As long as you don't stroll in during peak hours (like right before they close on Friday) they can have you out in two hours or less. I did it just 4 weeks ago to have the address on my license changed. They're open 5 days a week save for major holidays and open from 9-6 I believe.

The Republicans are spending a lot of taxpayers money on lawyers to suppress citizens right to vote.
How much do they need to spend to educate people to the fact that "You need ID to vote". I suppose however much it takes to translate to spanish "Usted necesita una tarjeta de identificación para votar."

That I'll agree with you on. But then again this is Rick Scott we're talking about...
