    Yes having an ID should be required. But to view this issue as anything more then another road block for legitamate poor and ethnic American citizens is a farce! It's another way to keep them silent! Rich fat cat politicians don't want the vote swayed by people they care nothing about. bl4ck0utsUn

    you need ID to get in a bar,you need ID to buy cigarettes and beer,you nee ID to cash a check,you need ID to apply for food stamps,and you need special ID to get through the gates at work.most of those reasons for needing ID are more than valid,as is the case with voting.the right to vote is exclusive to united states citizens without a felony criminal record and you should have no problem showing ID to verify citizenship status.
