Alabama Secretary of State Beth Chapman posted her proposed state voter ID regulation on Friday and announced she was stepping down on Monday morning. Chapman will go to work for a government affairs concern, but denies any lobbying will be involved.
The proposal provides free voter ID's, provided a notarized form is submitted with the application. And there's the rub. The form requires the seal of a notary public. A notary public is a minor state official appointed by the probate judge and is authorized under state law to collect a fee for sanctifying documents.

The state cannot place a tax on voting. Free voter ID's are not free if they must be notarized. On the internet I found notaries, but I would not have known where to find a notary without the internet. The choices I found were $5 across town or $35 they come to me. I suspect in rural Alabama they choices would be much more limited, and without the internet, much more difficult to locate.
