Dinjiin: FTA: Both Wercinski and Alessandra Soler, executive director of the Arizona Civil Liberties Union, noted that a voter's signature on the federal form is an oath that the individual is a U.S. citizen. That should be proof enough of citizenship, they argue.I disagree. People lie their asses off all the time. I see nothing wrong with requiring photo identification at the polls.Having said that, if photo identification is a requirement to vote, then getting that photo identification should be easy and free. That means that you're going to spend some money to send officials out to remote communities so that people don't have to travel 100 miles by bus to the nearest DMV office. So either you're going to need to build remote offices in places like Meadview and Kayenta or you're going to need a fleet of small busses or vans that can act as mobile offices. Or just allow small towns to offer photo ids down at the town hall. And even after all that, you're still going to need door-to-door service for people with disabilities.
