    It is if you want to vote in Kentucky.....

    Asked the poll worker about it and she just said she doesnt make the rules which is true.

    Still can hardly believe it......

    You can also be a friend of the precinct officer.

    Q: What identification can I bring to the polling place?

    A: All voters must produce identification or be known by a precinct officer prior to voting. Acceptable types of ID are personal acquaintance of precinct officer, driver’s license, Social Security card, county issued identification card approved in writing by the State Board of Elections, U.S. government-issued identification card, Kentucky state government-issued identification card with picture, credit card, or another form of ID containing both picture and signature.

    Credit card doesn't have your picture.

    Or necessarily your signature but that doesn't matter here. It's a piece of plastic issued by a private company with a name stamped into it.

    When I lived in CA, no ID was required. Heck, a while ago, San Francisco had setup apparatus to let non-citizens vote in local elections.

    Here in Idaho, either a photo ID or sign an affidavit of who you are. Seems tamper proof, right? :)

    NE no id required, but they ask your name which they look up on their registered voter list, along with your address. Then you sign the list, get a ballot and vote. Wish we had to produce some kind of ID.

    I am not sure if it is that way in SF still, but when I voted there, it was the same exact way. You would come in, tell them your name and address and you got all the ballots to fill out.

    As far as the new non-citizen voting, I would expect it is likely a lot like how the homeless generally voted. It was largely in a district that was dominated by activist called "homeless advocates" who would go around, round up anyone sober enough to read the ballot and drill them on what to vote on that election. It worked really well on district specific issues. :(

    I think you should have to be a veteran.
    And a land owner.
    What do you think of me now?
    LOL

    Although like most things political, the places where strict voter ID is the rule, are the same places that need the rules least.

    Even in the most liberal areas of Idaho, I suspect voter fraud is a non-issue.

    I am not as keen on your veteran idea applying to who can vote, but it damn sure should be a prerequisite that you are a veteran to qualify to run for President.

    Cards. I’m not going to tell you and the world where I bank, but one has my picture on the back and the other has my picture on the front. At no extra charge. I’m never asked for ID when using them anywhere in the world.

    LOL! I don't think anyone knows your name or can clean your account out by a bank name, but its good to be paranoid.
