    Didnt GW Bush propose that? I seem to recall that being in the negotiations concerning the Patriot Act. A national ID (real ID)card that could act as a voting ID, a personal ID and a card for all sorts of govt things like Medicare, VA etc. All info could be put on a magnetic strip on the back. ACLU went nuts saying it was awful and could be used to track people.

    Most states have always done this. If you miss two or three presidential elections, one is taken off the list. Also there is software used to crosscheck voter rolls from one state to the other. So if you move, they can remove you from one so you arent on two rolls at the same time. Decent ruling. States get final say in how they allow voting to happen.
    Thanks from MaryAnne

    I think even photo ID is becoming more accepted. I just got new health insurance and they required me to get a picture taken for the card to prevent medical fraud. I hear SS and Medicare are thinking about one as well. At some point, I assume we will get used to having one. My biggest peeve isnt the photo ID but the domicile/residency requirements that vary widely from state to state. Thats where it gets dicey.

    Mr. Singularity,

    What exactly is so onerous about having to show your ID?

    You have no idea what a Poll Worker goes through.

    Now,if they do not warn you that is a different story. Same day registration would solve the problem.
    Most states have always done this. Imagine how big the voter rolls would be? Nobody ever taken off?

    Could be an issue if they charge for an ID, but most states are beginning to offer them for free now. Even in high schools, they come and take photos of all turning 18 so they can get state ID.

    bajisima,

    Seriously? How can anybody, except criminals, illegals, and the one old lady living in a nursing home that the liberals drag out every time this issue is discussed not have an ID?

    in Cali you can still vote. I have to check the specifics again. But, if memory serves, they don't just take you off the list.
