New Jim Crow era voting laws????? Voter suppression??

I am over democrats claiming that requiring voter is is suppression...

Question, have people ever picked up a controlled substance, cigarettes, alcohol? Have they ever seen a doctor? Do they have access to a phone or have family , a friend or a neighbor who does? Have medical insurance or Medicaid? Receive or send mail, been to any type of store,  or a television which provides 1-800 numbers ( if any of these numbers were called no matter what they are for could get them where they need to go )? 

Unless a person lives somewhere without any type of communication or human contact and answered yes to one of these questions then they have the ability and access to a legal ID that will allow them to vote legally in the United States. Free transportation are funded by the government. Cost for an ID are either distributed through great assistance programs or a local organization where a person live.

I read that Stacey Abrams said that in long lines food and water were not allowed to be given out because of the pandemic. If food pantries are allowed to distribute food, I would think that they could distribute snacks and water in voting precincts and would be donated before elections by people who want to make it possible for every citizen to vote.

Any other reason?  Nothing nothing I have written is racist in any way.  There are poor underprivileged in every race of people and people of every race that are willing to help and assist.  Now what??

Update:

If a person is a legal citizen of the United States and legally allowed to vote then no law should be able to prevent a  person to vote. If they aren’t, no law should ever allow a person to vote 

Update 2:

Little Princess my perception exactly. Democrats are saying exact what the white people interviewed are saying. Stacy Abrams and those insisting that there is voter suppression need to talk the people from Harlem or minorities need to tell them to quit making them sound like incompetent idiots Thank you I never saw that

    You do NOT need a voter ID to do any of those things -- except voting.  If you can't afford to pay for an ID, you can use a free ID for any other things.  Voting is the only thing for which we disqualify a person merely because their ID did not cost enough money.

    A person may have ability and access to a legal ID, but not to one that will allow them to vote legally in the U.S., because for voting, and only for voting, we restrict the types of ID to ensure that a person who can't afford to pay for the an ID is able to use their free ID.

    For medicaid, you are not even allowed to use an ID for which you have paid money.  You must use a free ID.  Medicaid ID's are not legal to buy, and are available only for free, which is why they cannot be used to vote, legally or otherwise.

    You don't seem to understand... Black people don't know how to get a drivers license. They don't know where their DMV is. They don't know how to use a computer, much less even know about the internet.

    What is the problem that your trying to fix.  There are not loads of people voting in the wrong name.  So voter ID is a solution without a problem.

    Improving voter integrity doesn't help the DNC so won't be a priority.  You need to pass through multiple security checks and have ID to board an airplane, but you should be able to vote by signing a name on a piece of paper that you claim is your own.  Ridiculous!  And that's what the House is currently proposing by overriding State voter ID laws. Their perspective is that we need a less trustworthy system.
