    While probably not as strict, Az has this on the books
    Proof of Identification at the Polls
    Every qualified elector is required to show proof of identity at the polling place before receiving a ballot. The elector shall announce his/her name and place of residence or present the elector’s name and residence in writing to the election official. The elector shall present acceptable identification that:
    1. Bears the name, address, and photograph of the elector (See List 1), or
    2.Two different forms of identification that bear the name and address of the elector (See List 2), or
    3. One form of acceptable photo identification with one form of non-photo identification that bears the name and address of the elector (See List 3)



    List 1 - Acceptable forms of identification with photograph, name, and address of the elector
    • Valid Arizona driver license
    •Valid Arizona non-operating identification license
    •Tribal enrollment card or other form of tribal identification
    •Valid United States federal, state, or local government issued identification

    An identification is "valid" unless it can be determined on its face that it has expired.



    List 2 - Acceptable forms of identification without a photograph that bear the name and address of the elector (two required)
    •Utility bill of the elector that is dated within 90 days of the date of the election. A utility bill may be for electric, gas, water, solid waste, sewer, telephone, cellular phone, or cable television
    •Bank or credit union statement that is dated within 90 days of the date of the election
    •Valid Arizona Vehicle Registration
    •Indian census card
    •Property tax statement of the elector's residence
    •Tribal enrollment card or other form of tribal identification
    •Arizona vehicle insurance card
    •Recorder's Certificate
    •Valid United States federal, state, or local government issued identification, including a voter registration card issued by the County Recorder
    •Any mailing to the elector marked “Official Election Material”

    An identification is "valid" unless it can be determined on its face that it has expired.



    List 3 - Acceptable forms of identification, one identification with name and photo of the elector accompanied by one non-photo identification with name and address
    •Any valid photo identification from List 1 in which the address does not reasonably match the precinct register accompanied by a non-photo identification from List 2 in which the address does reasonably match the precinct register
    •U.S. Passport without address and one valid item from List 2
    •U.S. Military identification without address and one valid item from List 2

    I don't see any major problems with voter ID as long as the State has a way to provide ID to those who do not drive. There should be a method to assist those that are home bound who utilize mail in ballots to get registered the first time.

    The Republican law makers in the Virginia Legislature could hardly be considered a bastion of common sense lately!

    I don't see where anyone is required to pay anything here. Why the comparison to a poll tax? You register to vote. You get a card. (at no charge) and you bring it with you when you vote.

    What exactly is the problem here?

    Normally, I wouldn't have a problem with voters providing ID, but given the past history of some of the groups promoting it, I just don't trust them when when they state that their only motive is preventing voter fraud!

    Seems to me like everything on the list outside of photo ID are items people could come about with little charge or inconvenience. I would have no problem identifying myself as me when I'm casting my vote in any election.

    It's less objectionable than most but my standard objection remains: why make it harder to vote when there is no demonstrated problem with current voting requirements?

    How is it that ANYONE ever voted without showing an ID in the first place?

    That's a better question.

    The problem is there is already voter Fraud..............Here in Washington in King County Seattle dead people and felons vote for the democrat candidate..That is why it is very difficult for a Republican to win a Congressional seat.
