I'm amazed as well!!!!!!

But you know, a picture ID would infringe on someone's rights! (sarcasm intended)

Personally I think photo ID is a "no brainer".

Uh you conservatives do realize that that a lot of countries that use ids for voting have national ids that are completely free of charge.

I am a conservative, and I am concerned that things are so loosey-goosey at the voting booth! There is way too much room for fraud with the current set-up.

Photo ID required in my state! Should be required in all states. Didn't know till I went to vote today, but for those 65 and over, it's okay for them to use an expired driver's license. Everyone else has to have a current DL or a photo ID issued to people who receive public assistance, or an employee ID if you are a government worker, or a military ID, or a student ID, or a state issued non-DL ID.

I used my drivers license here in Tennessee today.

Want to use voter ID? Fine, give ever registered voter a free, photo registered voter card.

Poll taxes should illegal.
