    The only condition is if you lose all ID. One time, lost my wallet with everything, it was by fluke that I recognized someone who worked at the bank who remembered me.

    The thing is, it is rare for people to be stuck in the not having any form of ID required to get a valid ID.

    The thing is; at least in Canada, to be registered is as easy as NOT checking a box on a tax return. That registration card serves as a valid ID at a voting booth because it has specific station and booth where your name is.

    So they're not photo ID? Or is it like a passport where you mail in a verified photo?

    Psst.. I know the studies. You've posted them before.
    Where did I mention any minorities in my post - oh that's right, I didn't. Obviously you don't understand how Voter ID laws impact students and Senior's who longer drive.

    So go take your BS somewhere else.

    Again, banking and health care are not constitutional rights. Voting is.

    As I said, why not offer that service at welfare offices?
    Some states have begun the process of offering free photo IDs in compliance with the Real ID Act. One now needs an ID for everything. E-Verify and I9s which are used to get a job require a photo ID now, as do most govt services and college admissions testing. So its quite unbelievable any young person today wouldnt have one as its required for everything. A friend of mine didnt have a photo ID when he got called for jury duty and the judge told him he could be held in contempt of court. Its a big deal nowadays.

    Thats actually not true. Some states offer a voter ID card so when you go to vote you just show it and you are good to go. Others dont, you need an ID at every election. Always have.

    I have to think people who live in big urban states actually make it harder to get an ID. We are very rural and its simple, ever PO offers non driving got IDs. Have since the early 90s for people that didnt have passports.
