Did she actively vote?

Yes. That side of the family is fiercely republican.

Nowadays most places ask for ID when you use a credit card.

I get asked for a credit card maybe once our of every ten times I use my credit card.

They're supposed to ask, but few do. When I worked retail in college, I never asked to see someone's ID. A lot of people got angry because they thought we were accusing them of fraud, so I just stopped asking. None of my co-workers ever asked to see ID either.

I'm sure if democrats/republicans really want their voters out there, that financial aid to help purchase photo IDs would/should be done.

i had a car stolen years ago and there was a checkbook in it. of course the jackasses used the checks and jacked up my accts.

they took one to a grocery store where they knew a cashier. bought some stuff and got 300 back in cash. no id. no nothing.

i call their corporate office and went ballistic on them about how that was such a sham. they changed their policy after realizing it was seriously flawed.

a week later in line at same store chain a woman was asked for an id when she wrote a check. of course she was offended and then i gave her a quick story on why they were doing it and she goes ooooh. i see.

I thank people when they ask to see my Visa card or id. My cards have my pic on them.

There those big government lovers go, forcing people to buy something just so they can exercise their constitutionally protected rights. They just love raising taxes

We are talking about an ID, not $5 trillion in new healthcare taxes. Just include an ID program in Obama care. That way it's "free". Right?

Aparently, government mandates to purchase things are now legal, so all we need is a government mandate to purchase a Photo ID, and the problem is solved.

Also, I don't know about all the states, but I know the proposed NC law would have provided them free of charge. Still wans't good enough for those that oppose it.

I'm fine with it either way, it is a bit excessive (for those with multiple forms of existing ID) but its 2012, you should have some form of ID with your picture on it

Your voting right is constitutionally protected, BUT the rules to vote are set by your state. Nothing "prevents" anyone from voting.
