    Would you have a picture id if you did not have a license?
    Old people that don't drive don't always have picture IDs. My mother didn't drive and never had a picture ID right up until she died at 82.

    It's the only one I have.

    These are RARE exceptions USA-1... Either way, the law is still a good law in that it touches the 99.9% of people that it is intended too.

    How's that? She has a tattoo on the inside of her upper lip?

    She had other forms of ID(SS card, credit card, library card, birth certificate) and people that would vouch for her. You do know that 40 years ago people didn't have photo IDs. How did they prove who they were back then? Tattoos on their upper lips?

    I never had a photo ID until Wisconsin changed to photo drivers licenses in the 80s.

    How?

    I strongly support photo IDs for voting. If you don't have a driver's license, most (if not all) DMVs also issue non-driver's license ID cards...

    The same ways they proved their identity before picture IDs 40 years ago.

    Many people do need IDs to cash checks, apply for benignity or other situations that require that the prove who they are? A ID card in Wisconsin that expires in 8 years costs 28$. People can afford 28 dollars once every 8 years. In my state a ID card that expires in 4 years is 10 dollars.


    Driver licensing fees - Wisconsin Department of Transportation
    Oklahoma Identification Card

    It's the only one I have.
    Would you get a regular state issue ID if you did not have a driver's license?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I would, but it's not so easy for some elderly people and why should their constitutional rights be denied just because they don't have a picture ID?

    In order to prevent voter fraud. Frankly, no ones rights are being taken away. All they have to do is get an id...

    Forcing people to get a picture ID in order to vote? Whatever did they do before picture IDs were invented?
