Did you have to show separate ID for your bovine valve?

Yep...I did. But I made sure to belittle the 85 yr old lady who was forced to try and get it from me.  :lol

I had to show ID and answer a couple questions like DOB and address. Personally I think it's unessisary, in NY I had to give my name and they would check me on the voter role and then I had to sign next to my name in the roll.

I don't see why ID is nessisary or that voter fraud is an actual problem, seems like just another way for certain people to restrict access to voting to another group of people.

We did signature checks in IL when I was an election judge.

Or to guarantee you are a citizen.  "These People" have to show ID to buy booze, why not to vote?

They checked to make sure I was a citizen when I registered to vote. Checking signatures or verifying you address is sufficient.

You act like there has never been any voter fraud.  How many dead people voted for JFK again?

You act like these mythical identify thieves dispatched to steal elections wouldn't be able to produce an ID.

Is buying booze a constitutionally protected right?
