Voter ID Laws are just I tactic Republicans use to suppress the vote in Democratic strongholds like large cites.
They have presented no evidence of widespread vote fraud in the past to justify a need for an ID.
Republicans are notorious for introducing and passing "mew" laws to manipulate the system as a way to secure their political power.
Let the dead vote!
Come to think of it, I didn't have to provide ID to REGISTER to vote either.
I don't know about today, but when I registered years ago, I just called the the County Office and asked them to send me a voter registration form. They mailed it to me, I filled it out, sent it back, and then received a voter registration card in the mail.
So there was no verification required to either register or vote for most of the history of our country.
Where I vote they have a copy of your signature from your voter registration application in a book, and when you show up to vote, they cover it up and make you sign in next to it. Then campare the 2 signatures.
Some states now have tied in voter registration with renewing your drivers license so that helps with verification.
Voted : Yes
i always have to, in Canada you must provide id or have a bill stating your name & address or have someone vouch for you & take an oath
Voted : Yes
Provided it's administered fairly, I don't have a problem with this. I needed to present a Social Security card to register to vote for the first time, because I didn't have a driver's license until a few months later (both happened when I was 18). All of this paranoid nonsense about this being a Republican master plan to gut the Democrats' voter base just speaks badly as to the status of a segment of that same voter base. I can't imagine a responsible legal citizen who's been employed at some point in his life who doesn't hold some kind of photo ID. There should be some sort of provision made for providing photo cards at low cost to lower income voters who are senior citizens, who could present a certified birth certificate or a Social Security card or the like. If you'd been out of the labor force for 20 or 30 years and didn't drive, then I could understand your not having a photo ID.
Otherwise, registering denizens of the local cemeteries or illegal aliens won't fly any longer.
I was told that there are non-driving driving license or at least, a type of learner permit driver license ( the one that let u drive IF you have a valid driver in the front seat next to you. The idea of a Republican conspiracy is silly.
That's correct: there are "for identification purposes only" driver's license cards. I still might consider a waiver of the customary nominal fee for senior citizens of low income or the disabled or the like, but this would work.
