I agree. This is something that has to be really thought out. I look at it as another layer to vote, that requires another agency, more rules, etc
No need to apologize, I was just giving you some thoughts from the other side. I just happened to be listening to NPR that morning and someone from the Board of Elections was on.
- if you barely had time to make it to polls the first time, what makes you think people are going to show back up again if they forgot their IDS
- If you move, you have 6 months to update your ID. if that time occurs during an election and you've re-registered at ur new address, you have to vote provisionally
- If ur homeless, an ID may not be ur #1 priority. #2, you have no address for your ID
- What if you loose your ID on Election Day? or the week before?
- you do not need an ID to travel. you can travel without but it requires extra screening (think about those who loose their wallets on vacation)
- what if you get out of jail the day before the election and aren't able to get an ID in time?
- What if you turn 18 on election day?
- According to the lady on the radio, voter fraud is not an issue as bad registrations don't result in double votes
