Yeah, they're making it harder, but in 34 states you can still vote without a photo ID. And in 18 states you can vote without showing ANY form of ID; all you have to do is be registered.<quoted text>
Not so simple sunshine, I live in one of those snow bird states there are local things that they are able to vote on when you sign in to vote, Photo ID with magnetic strip required a customized ballot is lazer printed, when you absentee ballot that enters into a national data base, you might be punching cards or pulling levers were using start of the art computerized voting in the sunshine state.
Btw, there is no national absentee database, only statewide ones as required under HAVA (2002). Of course typical of any govt run system, there are approximately 50 different databases, non of which are compatible with the other. So voting officials in Minnesota can't check the database for Iowa, etc.
