    I would think you're a minority of people who don't carry their ID on them.

    I carry my ID on me always and know, I probably won't use it. Sometimes, I get asked for an ID to match my credit card. You're legally required to have ID on you if you drive. If you're pulled over and don't have ID, it makes things very difficult. If I die in an accident, mass shooting, etc, I can be identified and my family notified.

    I don't think one has to carry their ID with them most of the time, I just think it's smart to. I say this knowing IDs won't be used 99% of the time.

    Agree, and truthfully how hard is it? I keep my money, my insurance cards, credit cards, and ID all in one little wallet. It's not like it's an inconvenience and as you say if something bad were to happen I'd like whomever to know where they can start looking for family to notify them.

    As far as gaining id, I said it earlier, how amazingly hard is it to get one every 5 or so years? I'm all for making it easier for some but it's not like it's an unreasonable request. If you really can't afford one every once in a great while there's something legitimately wrong with that in itself. Maybe we should focus on that aspect.

    Sorry you are so hurt by "umm." It seemed appropriate to me since your comment said literally the opposite of what I have interpereted some people to say in this very thread. I took your challenge regarding One Brow, hit the link to a previous page in this discussion, and the very first comment said this:
    Now I assume he, or someone else on his behalf, is going to claim that his post is somehow not suggesting that voter ID should not be required at all, but to me it appears to say precisely that. Their may be other posts from him or others in this thread that say the same thing even more clearly but I see no reason to bother looking for them. I have also heard commentators on CNN suggest that there should be no ID requirement at all. It doesn't even make sense to me why we are having this discussion about whether ID should be required if what the people claiming it should not be required are really saying is that ID should be easier to obtain.

    Can you show me the equivalent link regarding documents according to US laws?
    https://www.politsei.ee/en/instructions/applying-for-an-id-card-for-an-adult
    Is it really possible and legal to live entire life in the USA without the main ID or registration document?
    For example, in Estonia and probably everywhere in EU:
    1. A child is born.
    2. At the hospital a unique ID code is assigned, if you a have girl born in this century, a la 01. february, 2015, the code is 61502010245 (last four digits are control sum) - i do not know what happens should we have more than 9999 babies born in the same day :).
    3. You have 30 days to figure out a name you want a register it in local family agency.
    4. No later than your child is 15 years old - you must get ID card for him/her. Passport is optional.

    And it is really easy even for those who have minimum wage.

    Do you carry it with you when you drive? You should because if you get pulled over, become involved in an accident etc. you are certainly going to wish you had it, and you will probably pay a price for not having it with you. I think it is pretty responsible and reasonable to own and to carry ID.

    Someone said "Nobody is suggesting that ID shouldn't be required to vote." I listed someone off the top of my head who was suggesting exactly that. If I said "they" then maybe I overstated in this instance (though I have definitely heard more people make the suggestion when this sort of a discussion comes up so my overstatement is certainly not egregious).

    So people are too poor to get ID's but how do you get a job without proper identification?

    It's in my truck (with my fishing license) so it's there when I'm driving. Otherwise I never have it.

    Did you know that many companies hire illegal immigrants?

    I'm not talking about illegals. Illegals can't vote anyways so it really a moot point of what's being talked about.

    Oh was just answering the question you asked.
    Which was how can someone get a job without ID? It happens, they do.

    I would assume that non illegals without ID get a job the same way illegals without id do

    Ok so if someone is working it's plenty plausible to think they can afford to get an ID of some sort or afford proper documentation. It's not like it needs to be renewed every year. According to Google a new birth certificate is $15-$30 and a new social security card is free. That's affordable to anybody over a span of a lifetime.

    My point is that someone posted that people can't afford it and I find that extremely hard to believe. Some people maybe, but that number would be insanely minimal. Again, I'd be fine if they were free but I'm rebutting that point. $30 for a 5 year licence or $60 for a 5 year licence and new birth certificate is $6-$12 a year.

    Not hurt, just pointing out it is kinda rude.

    In my last election, I was mailed a non-photo-ID that I brought to the polling place, and I was asked to sign by my name. Both are forms of ID, and neither seems particularly likely to disenfranchise someone.

    That said, I'm not opposed to verbal-ID (as in, I identify who I am and my address, and the poll worker checks the list), which you might think of as no-ID.

    Very easy to believe. I'm not an expert, but from Wikipedia (Harvard study) "the expenses for documentation, travel, and waiting time [for obtaining voter identification cards] are significant—especially for minority group and low-income voters—typically ranging from about $75 to $175. When legal fees are added to these numbers, the costs range as high as $1,500." So you are making $5 an hour and trying to feed your family, you need to work 25 + hours for the privilege to vote. Most of us here, this is not a lot of money, but that's not the point.

    You didn't ask if they were affordable in the posts I quoted. Just if people could get hired without ID. That's what I was discussing.

    It's been studied multiple times, by multiple people. If you think you have a source with a larger, more reliable number, I'll read it.

    How many people advocate for being able to vote by showing up and having a pulse? I think this is a tiny tiny minority of people, if that. The problems are too few to begin listing.

    The "zero ID" argument is a straw man, in my opinion.

    Any right is limited and can be removed upon cause. Doesn't mean they don't have the right fundamentally, just that it is suspended. Perhaps that's too fine a point, though.
