To vote you need to register.
How you do it?
DMV. Here in Virginia you need to register and show legal status to have the opportunity to vote.
In Tennessee (where I live), if you have access to a computer, you download the vote registration application, fill it out and mail back it in to the county clerk.

All you have to do is lie on the application, the forms are supposed to be checked, but you know how the government is on that subject.

With Tennessee's mail-in process, a first time voter is required to vote in person and that's when their photo ID is verified to show that they can legally vote.

Here in Virginia you need to be registered with the DMV before requesting it.

And our DMV requires proof of legal residence to start any process.

Thats pretty intresting. If the system can match it up with other documents, such as death certificates, birth certificates, prison documentaion, Merrige certificates and a whole bunch of other like property tax bills and deeds, all in a ssingle instants. why even need and ID when you go to the poll? If you even had a camera set up at the voting poll as you sign in to vote; it will take your picture. The reason for the picture? So they can pick you up later if your vote don't check out with all the paper work they have on you, before your vote is counted. Everyone has some kinda of tax deal on them. With so many documents on you it will be more than enough to double check who you are. And if any illegal trys and vote, it will be rejected and the illegal will be picked up at that last known location, or his whereabouts will be known. Mean while people that may have something wrong with their paper work can have a chance to up date it. Who knows, maybe some out standing warrents maybe straiten out? Child molester picked up and those criminals that don't have the right to vote in some states, their votes rejected. If such a system can be made, everyone can vote and only the good votes will count and maybe some good can come out of mistakes in paper work can be corrected? This may even make that little bit of voters fruad the republican racist keep and crying about go away completely. They really are crying about nothing, because they have been scewing up this country and still want to, this is why they are making a big issue out voter IDs. They don't really care about voter fraud. If they could use it effectively they would. But since they can afford a car and gas and know the poor can't they know they can steal vote this way. That is why they are changing early voting laws at the same time. It's about who can get an edge on the vote and being a republican, they would rap themselves in a flag and kie their azz off.

The process you're trying to describe is too complicated, the government screws up simple stuff, why would you want to make it impossible?

Taking someone's photo woundn't work, do you really think that the government is going search out for a fruadulent voter, photo album in hand?

We just need a simple, but robust system that works.

Your right. I thought I had a good idea, but the other day aI was hit with a virus while on topix and had to reboot. Point being there are always hackers. It was a thought that the more documents one can cross reference the better one can check out ones ID without and actual photo. But theres always somebody beating the system. The 1% are always doing it.

New evidence has surfaced linking the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency to the introduction of crack cocaine into Black neighborhoods with drug profits used to fund the CIA-backed Nicaraguan Contra army in the early 1980s.
This evidence has given credence to long-held suspicions of the U.S. government's role in undermining Black communities.
According to a series of groundbreaking reports by the San Jose Mercury News, for the better part of a decade, a San Francisco Bay Area drug ring, comprised of CIA and U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency agents and informants, sold tons of cocaine to the Crips and Bloods street gangs of Los Angeles.
Millions of dollars in drug profits were then funneled to the Fuerza Democratica Nicaraguense (Nicaraguan Democratic Force), the largest of several anti-Communists commonly called the Contras. The 5,000-man FDN was created in mid-1981 and run by both American and Nicaraguan CIA agents in its losing war against Nicaragua's Sandinista government, the Cuban-supported socialists who had overthrown U.S.-backed dictator Anastasio Somoza in 1979.
This CIA-backed drug network opened the first pipeline between Columbia's cocaine cartels and the Black neighborhoods of Compton and Los Angeles, according to the Mercury News.
In time, the cocaine that flooded Los Angeles helped spark a "crack explosion" in urban America and provided the cash and connections needed for Los Angeles's gangs to buy Uzi sub-machine guns, AK-47 rifles, and other assault weapons that would fuel deadly gang turf wars, drive-by shootings, murders and robberies -- courtesy of the U.S. government, according to the article.
"While the FDN's war is barely a memory today, Black America is still dealing with its poisonous side effects. Urban neighborhoods are grappling with legions of homeless crack addicts. Thousands of young Black men are serving long prison sentences for selling cocaine -- a drug that was virtually unobtainable in Black neighborhoods before members of the CIA's army started bring it into South Central in the 1980s at bargain basement prices," wrote Mercury News reporter Gary Webb, in the first installment of the shocking series of reports.
Although the Mercury News details the activities of numerous Nicaraguan and American informants and ties involved in the drug-gun trade, three men are cited as key players: Norwin Meneses, a Nicaraguan smuggler and FDN boss; Danilo Blandon, a cocaine supplier, top FDN civilian leader in California, and DEA informant; and Ricky Donnell Ross, a South Central Los Angeles high school dropout and drug trafficker of mythic proportions, who was Mr. Blandon's biggest customer.
According to the Mercury News article, for the better part of a decade, "Freeway Rick," as he was nicknamed, was unaware of his supplier's military and political connections.
But together, the trio was directly and indirectly responsible for introducing and selling crack cocaine as far away as Cleveland, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Dayton and St. Louis.
Ricky Ross' street connections, ability to obtain cocaine at low prices and deals that allowed him to receive drugs from Contra-CIA operatives with no money upfront helped him to undercut other dealers and quickly spread crack. He also sold crack wholesale to gangs across the country, said the Mercury News report.
Most of the information surrounding the CIA's involvement in the crack trade came from testimony in the March drug trafficking trial of Mr. Ross, 36, who, along with two other men were convicted of cocaine conspiracy charges in San Diego.

I agree, it should also be mandatory ( federal level ) in all states. if the kneegers claim they don't have the $$$$ to buy the I.D. then give it to them rather than give them free cell phones like Obama is doing now with that wasted stimuilis money.
in Georiga they give the cry baby kneegers the I.D. for free, no voter fraud in Georiga.
