I was thinking about all the reasons we currently need an id, driving a car, opening a bank account (sometimes using existing account), credit card use, alcohol-tobacco-cold medicine purchases, social security, medicare, medicaid, disability distribution, check verification, pre-employment verifications, title transfers, vehicle tab renewals, marriage license, police requests (non driving), hunting/fishing license, doctor visits, pharmacy prescriptions/refills, and many other places are now verifying individuals identities via photo ids like hospitals during late visitation times.
I am thinking that regardless of the voter id amendment, society would function easier if anybody had some sort of id be it drivers license or government issued.
Ok, lets get to why the Voter ID Amendment is a bad idea. It is not because the elderly will have a harder time to vote, they have multiple id's to offer. The poor will be left out of the process? No, if you receive government benefits, you have shown id. Is the cost of ID greater then the savings society receives?
lets hear your opinions!
