CARSON CITY, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- It's not often both sides are happy with a court decision. But that's the outcome of two hearings on a constitutional push to require photo ID to vote in Nevada.

The hearings were not to determine if the initiative was good or bad, but if the summary describing the plan to voters was accurate. Judge James Russell agreed with those challenging the wording.

The initiative is sponsored by conservative Sharron Angle.

On News 4 at 5, we will explain what this means for supporters and opponents of the constitutional initiative.

My son had to show a picture ID to prove he was who he was at the IRS office in Reno, and you have to show a picture ID to get on a plane. The excuse the left has for not wanting a picture ID to vote is nothing but a ploy to gain illegal votes from illegal people. PERIOD!

The argument is that not everyone can get somewhere to get an ID. It's a bogus argument. If you are a citizen and want to exercise this right, you will make the effort to get to a place that would provide an ID in the same manner you would go to the voting booth. This should be required and people that care enough about the country to vote would also care that the voting process secure his/her vote.

Voting is the Right of all LEGAL,LIVING AMERICAN CITIZENS. Every LEGAL Voter gets only ONE Vote. The ONLY reason NOT to show a picture ID to Vote is if you intend to LIE or CHEAT. We use our Picture ID's to drive,secure rentals and many other things,and a Picture ID can be had without any significant cost,so what's the problem? Would showing an ID with your face on it make it too hard to cheat? Since YOU are fighting to prevent a LEGAL Election,I can only consider you a CRIMINAL. Even if you want to Vote a Liberal ticket,you need to do it LEGALLY.

Consider the source, this a solution without a problem! Voting should be the right of all citizens and this process should be inclusive, not exclusive. Next they will want to revert to white,male,land owner restrictions of over two centuries ago. Calling this a backwards idea is a huge understatement,
