Photo ID to vote Mama Rice 34 kids; North Las Vegas, Nevada 11980 posts

How would requiring a photo ID (not a driver's license necessarily, a school ID, health card, something with your picture and your name) be considered a bad thing when going to vote? Every election there are reports that people used dead celebrities name, cartoom characters, or just names that are not real to vote. It is 2012, we have the technology to track this information better.



I am not saying I want it to stop real, living, eligible voters (I know felons can't vote, but I am unsure of the time periods), I would hope it would stop cartoon character name, dead celebrity name, etc from voting.

I had to show my ID card, and I think everyone else should, too.

I never have....it always kinda bothered me. Like what if my neighbor or family (they would have to know my first and last name only so really anyone) decided they would go and vote in my name. They could without any proof they were not me.

Yea. That is just terrible to imagine. I have had an ID card since I was 14 years old, so I fail to see the problem.
