    What alternate method does South Carolina provide for those people who don't drive?
    You have to have a photo ID to register to vote. What's the big brew-ha-ha to have to show a photo ID to actually vote?

    How can a person prove his or her citizenship?


    California Elections Code section 2111 permits a person to prove they are a citizen who is eligible to register to vote by signing the affidavit of registration under penalty of perjury.

    How do your first photo ID? Or a SS card? Ever hear of a birth certificate?

    Again: anyone that doesn't have a photo ID, isn't registered to vote, anyway.

    You realize that you don't need a photo ID to GET a photo ID, right? So what's the ****ing point of requiring a photo ID to vote, rather than, say, the documents you would use to get a photo ID to begin with? Could it be any less logical?

    Re: In South Carolina, attorney general says voting rights at risk

    A photo ID in SC is $5.00, the fee is waived in cases of hardship. Welfare/medicaid/pay stubs/1099s/CoLB/social security card/proof of address/medicare/ss documents....LOTS of things are proof of indentity to get one. Almost anyone thats a SC citizen can get one. So tell us again what the deal is? Im curious.

    Go to the DMV website and do some due diligence for once. Find out exactly whats required.

    California actually does not accept Drivers Licenses from other states. Their system requires...REQUIRES a Certificate of Live Birth obtained from the Secretary of State of your previous state to recieve one. The hold up is approximately 30 days to get one, California requires you to relicense in 10 days and register your vehicle in 20 days, neither of which is possible without a California license.

    good luck with the right to carry a gun without showing photo Id and going through a background check, making your above claim ridiculous

    I find this link absurd. They claim that in one of the cases, a 17 year old being allowed to vote wouldn't of been corrected by requiring photo id. How do they figure that?

    You know what is better than watching the right make stuff up?

    Watching them getting caught at it


    South Carolina voter registration form (excerpt):

    ID Required: If you are registering for the first time in this county, you must attach a copy of a current valid photo ID or a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck or other government document that shows your name and address in this county. If you do not provide this identification now, you will be required to provide this information when you vote. Voters who are age 65 and over, voters with disabilities, members of the U.S. Uniformed Services or Merchant Marines and their families, and U.S. Citizens residing outside the U.S. are exempt from this requirement.
