How could they be divided. Of course you should have ID. No ID No vote! Illegal aliens could be John Smith one day and Dave Johnson the next. Howabout throwing in your SS number also so maybe they could e-verify who you really are! There should be no problem with asking and proving who you are. this is nothing more than Political B.S. and insanity!!

The question should not be “can state government require proof of citizenship”, the question should be why does the federal government not require proof of citizenship? There is absolutly no reason that proof of identity and citizenship should not be required to vote.
