Wow, two of these guidelines sound EXTREMELY odd. I have quite a bit of experience working with the Voter Registration system of my state, and running
the polls as well.
First off, how is a same day registration as voting even legal? How can a background check be performed to verify the registrant's legal status as a
U.S. Citizen with Correct Address, Social Security Number, Name, DOB, Age, and Full and/or Restored Rights allowing them to vote?
Second, how can there be a "National Voter Registration" when every state has their own standards? The only National Standards are to be a Legal
U.S. Citizen, Age 18 or over, and to be a Legal resident within the precinct which you plan to cast your vote.
As far as ID's, you MUST present a Valid ID everytime you vote in MANY states, NOT simply the First time. If you fail to present an ID, you will
either be turned away, or you must sign a sworn affidavit confirming your status and Identification. If you perjure this statement, you will be
prosecuted. Perjury typically carries a 5 year sentence.
