Since people are concerned with identity theft is it wise of our lawmakers to "sell" for five dollars our voter information? It can be called a fee....but....is it wise?

It's not the retailers, it's the CC companies.
"All the networks allow a merchant to ask for identification. MasterCard and Visa, however, explicitly prohibit retailers from requiring an ID to accept a properly signed card."


Can retailers ask for ID with your credit card?

Why would anyone pay $5 for information that is public information?

Are you aware that voter registration records are also public records in NY state?

In fact most, if not all states, have voter registration records available for public access.

The new chips on the credit cards should end some fraud, it's my understanding that they can't be duplicated by a skimmer. They are also holding merchants accountable for accepting bad cards, as it should be. There is a company in SE Florida called Brandsmart and every credit card transaction required ID, that's how it should be everywhere over a certain purchase amount.

We have had people who have the cards with chips that require a pin have to walk out without buying merchandise because they did not even realize they needed a pin and didn't set up one........ or maybe they were trying to use someone elses card. Maybe a pin is a good idea for all cards, but man if that was the case, I would never be able to remember them all. :-) Can you imagine how much longer the lines would be as people try to figure out what pin to use? The chips are already backing up the lines some because they take longer to read than the swipe did. Also if people swipe first, the machine denies and tells them to insert the chip which adds another few seconds.

All my cards (whether debit or credit) have chips but unlike in Europe, I don't need any pin to use the chips except for the debit cards ofc. I don't see the point, chip should be tied to a pin of your choosing, that way it's harder to steal your identity.
I try to use Apple Pay whenever possible though.

Re: above comment that information is not sold by State. I ran across this article when researching the high rates of identity theft in FL:

"A spokesman from the Florida Division of Elections told us the information is sold to third parties, and those companies put it online for everyone to see."

Florida voters' birth dates, voting history online

Seems to indicate that the State of FL sells information to 3rd parties who put it online. The article is dated August 2013, so things may have changed since then.

Or if you are a certified law enforcement officer.
