Lubbock County Republican Party Chairman Carl Tepper Debunks Democratic Arguements Against Voter ID Laws [AUDIO]

On Tuesday’s edition of Lubbock’s First News, Carl Tepper, Lubbock County Republican Party Chairman, talked with Tom Collins and Laura Mac about the importance of voter ID laws.

Today, the Lubbock Democratic Party is holding a rally against voter ID laws at the DPS building on Avenue K. Tepper said he had never seen such a strong protest against a simple check and balance and that he isn’t sure why the Democrats are so opposed to it. He said there have been plenty of documented instances of voter fraud, most notably in the Democratic primary, and that voter ID laws would help bring honesty and integrity to elections for both parties.

“…we’ve had dead people voting. That’s been the problem. You can get those voter ID cards anywhere, you can print them up if you have the right stock paper and the right  color. This way, if you have a voter ID, it’s protecting the intergrity of your vote, it’s protecting families who don’t want their deceased loved ones voting for the wrong guy, and it’s just a general check and balance of the process that needs to be there.”

Tepper also said the argument of people not being able to afford a photo ID is also invalid, as the DPS will issue anyone a free photo ID upon request. He said he and his office will be more than willing to assist anyone in need of a photo ID.
