Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
I'm assuming you've been at the same job since before 1986, then?
The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 required that all new hires provide proof of their identity as well as elgibility to work in the United States. Proof of identity must then be documented on the I-9 form and signed by both the employee and the manager or HR person. It's the law.
I find it very, very difficult to believe that employers in the legal field regulary break the law, so congratulations on your career longevity.
USCIS - I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification
The Obama campaign has been so psyched out by Romney infiltrators at their events they have resorted to checking IDs at the door. They want to allow people to vote without ID but you can't get into an Obama for President rally without ID. What's more important? Insuring only registered, legit citizens get to vote or protecting Obama from getting heckled or asked a tough question?
President Barack Obama's presidential campaign checked the identification of the supporters attending Obama's "framing" event at Cuyahoga Community College today.
The 1,500 supporters in attendance picked up tickets at campaign offices in Northeast Ohio beginning on Monday, though tickets to the event made no mention of an ID requirement.
Jessica Kershaw, the Obama campaign's Ohio Press Secretary, confirmed in a statement to BuzzFeed that the campaign checked every supporter's identification at the door.
"We checked every ID at the door to make sure it matched with the name on the ticket that supporters filled out," she said. "We did this for every person who came in."
Obama Campaign Checks IDs At The Door
For example, a school photo ID plus a Social Security card is sufficient for the I-9. It is insufficient in:
* Mississippi (new law awaiting USDOJ approval),
* South Carolina,
* Texas (new law awaiting USDOJ approval).
Red states all. So... what's good enough to get you a job by federal standards is not good enough to get you into the voting booth in some red states (with more coming, I'd imagine, as soon as the lobbyist-funded ALEC gets back to work).
Voter ID: State Requirements
The latest right wing shenanigans -- like the Rose Garden heckler -- show just how immature their ideology really is. But please, I'm sure there is a thread or six on this somewhere here, please go find one of those threads and don't derail this one.

Id examine the turnout in Wisconsin and the result before you say that.Let's get real, Republicans do not want, nor have they every wanted broad participation in elections... it just does not favor them.
Republicans showed up record numbers, as did Dems. Barrett still lost.
That would make you wrong. It also makes your narrative wrong. Trot on back to the DNC and get a new one.
From your own source under acceptable forms of ID under new legislation:
INDIANAGeorgia driver’s license, even if expired
ID card issued by the state of Georgia or the federal government
Free voter ID card issued by the state or county
Valid employee ID card containing a photograph from any branch, department, agency, or entity of the U.S. Government, Georgia, or any county, municipality, board, authority or other entity of this state
Valid U.S. military identification card

MISSISSIPPISpecific forms of ID are not listed in statute. ID must be issued by the state of Indiana or the U.S. government and must show the following:
Name of individual to whom it was issued, which must conform to the individual's registration record
Photo of the person to whom it was issued
Expiration date (if it is expired, it must have an expiration date after the most recent general election; military IDs are exempted from the requirement that ID bear an expiration date)
Must be issued by the United States or the state of Indiana
SOUTH CAROLINAMississippi's new constitutional amendment simply says "government-issued photo identification." Implementing legislation and/or administrative rules will be necessary to define precisely what this means.

Either you didnt read your own source or you are completely full of it. Or possibly both.Driver's license
Election identification certificate
Dept. of Public Safety personal ID card
U.S. military ID
U.S. citizenship certificate
License to carry a concealed handgun issued by the Dept. of Public Safety
All of the above must include a photo of the voter. With the exception of the certificate of citizenship, these forms of ID cannot be expired, or cannot have expired more than 60 days before the election.
When buying a gun at any registered gun dealer what happens? You need to present valid ID. Owning a gun is a right. So if it is required to show a photo ID in order to buy a gun...why shouldn't a photo ID be required to vote?
And if you don't think that illegals vote you may want to rethink that...
