    From the provided link:
    What to Expect at the Polls
    Polls will be open on Election Day from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. local time. Contact your Supervisor of Elections for early voting hours which may vary between early voting sites. To determine your polling place, check your voter information card or contact your Supervisor of Elections. You may also find your polling place on Division of Elections Home, through the online voter lookup, or on your Supervisor of Elections’ website.
    In order to vote at the polls during early voting or on Election Day, you must show a photo and signature identification. Acceptable forms of photo identification include: Florida driver license, Florida identification card issued by the Department of Highway, Safety and Motor Vehicles, United States passport, Debit or credit card, Military identification, Student identification, Retirement center identification, Neighborhood association identification, or Public assistance identification.
    If your photo identification does not contain your signature, you will be required to show an additional form of identification that provides your signature.

    Once your identity has been established, you will be asked to sign the precinct register or electronic device (or during early voting, the early voting ballot certificate) and then you will be allowed to vote.

    Florida driver license (I would have one of these - at a cost of $48 - but ...)
    Florida identification card issued by the Department of Highway, Safety and Motor Vehicles (if no license, I would have to buy one of these for $25)

    United States passport (don't have one, can't afford one)
    Debit or credit card (don't have one - not available to me with a photo)
    Military identification (don't have one, can't get one)
    Student identification (don't have one, can't get one)
    Retirement center identification (don't have one, can't get one)
    Neighborhood association identification (don't have one, can't get one)
    Public assistance identification. (don't have one, can't get one)


    Looks like if I lived in FL it would be pay the State or not vote. That's a 24th Amendment violation plain and simple.

    The state is discriminatory by nature, but alas if you wish to play their game you must play by their rules. I personally prefer to disenfranchise myself from these illusory spectacles.

    Actually you don't leave your house to get the food stamps. Its not that dems aren't on board with it, they typically just want the least among us taken care of if it goes into affect.

    Because that's what this fake issue is about. The GOP thinks it will give them an advantage over the Democrats, so they're in favor of it. The Democrats agree that it will give the GOP an advantage, so they are against it.

    That's all this is about. Party politics at it's worst. All appeals to fairness, etc. are just the BS that the parties feed us, and while I shouldn't be surprised that some are buying it completely, I am disappointed.

    The government does have a valid obligation to make sure that someone claiming to be Joe Smith from precinct 1 is actually Joe Smith from precinct 1.
