Ben Carson Believes Strict Voting Laws Are Necessary

Democrats seem to pull the race card when it comes to restrictive voter laws. On Oct. 21, Ben Carson told the Topeka Capital-Journal, "I've made it my personal project, every time I visit a country outside the U.S. to ask what do they do to ensure the integrity of voting?"

He continued "There’s not one single country anywhere -- first world, second world, it doesn't matter -- that doesn't have official requirements for voting. My question to those people who say we’re racist because we apply those standards: Are all the other countries of the world racist? I don’t think so. Voting is an important thing. Obviously, you want to make sure that it's done by the appropriate people."

Carson supports voting laws that require residents to provide proof of citizenship upon registration and identification before voting. This is something Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach supports. Hillary Clinton publicly criticized Kobach for the strict voting requirements and his plan to delete incomplete voter registration after 90 days.

Clinton tweeted "We should be doing everything we can to get young people more engaged in our democracy, not putting up obstacles."

Kobach responded against what Clinton called "a targeted attack on voting rights," saying that every non-citizen vote cancels out a citizen's. Kobach went on to say "The Hillary Clinton campaign is unhappy with the fact that Kansas has the most secure election system in the country."

He added that when people call voter registration racist, they attack him personally in an attempt to predict his heart's motivations.
