    You went and got another ID...huh? By that logic, the folks who want to vote, can carry their ass down to the DMV, or the courthouse, or where ever and get an ID.

    Like it, or not, we're fixing to find out if you're right, or not, because voter ID laws are kicking in all over the country.

    Yes, I could get an id without too much of a problem. Just about anyoe but a homeless person that lost his id could do so.

    So again, the only demographic I see effected is the homeless.

    And again, I don’t think that is enough concern to prevent us from requiring id

    A homeless person can get an ID just as easily as anyone else.

    false.

    in my state it would be very difficult. in addition to a birth certificate, they would need some piece of mail with their address on it.

    Almost sounds like, in your state, that a homeless person couldn't register to vote, neither.

    A homeless person could not register to vote here, either, and most likely anywhere else. You have to have an address, and by definition, a homeless person doesn't have one.

    but, all this talk about disenfranchising people who lack a picture ID is kind of silly. What proportion of the adult population lacks picture ID? How many don't have driver's licenses and don't have a bank account, and never use credit cards? That can't be more than 1% at the very most. Give those 1% ers an opportunity to go and get a free picture ID. Everyone should have one anyway.
