You probably gave your insurance info to the hospital, so they didn't care about the rest once the insurance was verified.
    My wife had a social security card back in the late Fifties - no photo required. No photo required to go to the hospital either. You can buy liquor in my state without a photo ID as long as you can prove your are 21.

    If I am registered to vote and they have my signature which matches when I sign in - why is that not enough?

    Not everyone gets thier registration card days/weeks/months in advance. Some people sign up to vote on the day of the election.

    I would have no problem with a different rule for those who do same day election and registration to prove who they say they are and so we know they belong in that precinct.

    Hmm...sounds like a perfect opportunity to require a state ID to me.

    Photo ID... no. When I got my first drivers license, I only had to show my social security card and my birth certificate. I think that should be enough. I don't think photo id should be required. The thing about a photo id is that the most common one is the divers license, and most older people don't carry valid drivers licenses.

    Why shouldn't you have to show your ID when making the most important decisions for our country?
    Voting is a constitutional right, boarding a plane is not.

    seriously, in this day and age if you don't have a photo ID you are probably someone I really don't trust to be voting.
    My grandpa doesn't have a drivers license or valid photo ID... his passport is expired. He is 80 and physically disabled. Why in God's name do you not him to vote?

    Re: Photo ID to vote?

    If my signature matches the signature on my voters registration card,why should that not be enough? It has been since 1972.

    Are there some huge examples of voter fraud convictions that I am not aware of?

    Some here are on record as willing to use all manner of excuses if they feel the voter in question will not vote for the Republican Party candidate. Perhaps they suspect your grandfather of being in that hated group?

    Re: Photo ID to vote?

    While voter fraud isn't a huge problem, it sounds really damn desperate and largely unbelievable when people say, "it's a difficult or disenfranchising burden."
    The overwhelming, vast majority of people, already have a state issued photo ID.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
