I am just using this as an example, I am not requesting any action be taken against any user of any kind. This just brings up an important question of how to handle possible misrepresentations of another user's question/answer. I am hoping for feedback on what the community thinks is the best course of action. I a grateful that the user didn't think my edit was a contentious edit and flag it.
-Do “free” Voter IDs cost $25 in any state?
No. As your answer points out, there is no direct fee for a voter ID.
No. As your answer points out, there is no direct fee for a voter ID nor is their a $25 fee associated with any required documents in any state.
If you examine my answer, I never claim there is "a direct fee for voter ID. In fact my answer states multiple times that there is no indirect fee for required supporting documentation. It explains the minimum requirements for identification, notes some rejections of minority/poor's inability to obtain ID in court cases, and lists the actual free/low cost alternatives of all 50 states. (excerpt below)
No state requires paying a fee to vote. If you are unable to pay the required costs associated with obtaining the documentation to prove you can legally vote (indigent), then those fees are waived. If you are unable to travel to vote, you can always vote absentee, and similarly those people are exempt from providing supporting documentation.
I also corrected some ambiguity in my quoted? questions. The first is ambiguous because of an unreferenced pronoun.
Is this claim a misrepresentation of Voter ID requirements?
thisthe claim , "Obtaining photo ID can be costly and burdensome, with even free state ID requiring documents like a birth certificate that can cost up to $25 in some places," a misrepresentation of Voter ID requirements?
and this question, where my example in the OP to clarify what I meant by, "Is this claim a misrepresentation of Voter ID requirements?" was cut short. (There are other points too that I would call mischaracterizations, but I didn't catch them at first).
Are anti-VoterID advocates just claiming that birth certificates can cost as much as $25
Are anti-VoterID advocates just claiming that birth certificates can cost as much as $25. Voter ID laws require documents, an example of which is a birth certificate or utility bill, and they are just using the more expensive example?
My question is, what is the proper way to handle what could be considered a mischaracterization of another user's question/answer?
