But why the hell does it have to be a separate ID card
...why can't we just show our driver's license or other ID card to vote?
I think all this is is just another money revenue scheme, and is not intended to help the people at all.
So of course it will be enacted in many other states now.
I hate this country. All it cares about is raising money to keep it's rich people happy.
And sometimes I want to become a socialist. But Socialism is no better.
A big part of REAL ID’s value, according to Mark Lowe, director of the DOT’s Motor Vehicle Division, will be in verifying the authenticity of the documents and the accuracy of the information used by applicants. Iowa will be able to interact with federal databases to verify that federal documents submitted by applicants are authentic.
The new rules stem from Congressional passage of the Real ID Act in 2005, at the recommendation of a commission studying lessons from the 9/11 attacks. Legislators in many states called the requirements unconstitutional, portraying REAL ID as a kind of Orwellian government effort to track citizens.
