Election Day... SCANDAL!

I went up to our polling place to vote yesterday. While I know that you do have to show ID's, I think that is odd. Maybe we should have to show ID.

I took Jesper with me to vote, so he could see the process and see what we did.

2 of our 4 referendums passed. I am sad that 2 did not!
As the law is written now, you do not need to show an ID. The election judge is clearly in the wrong when he asks for it.

If you want to have a discussion about whether one should have to have an ID to vote, that is fine. Republicans bring this up all the time because they believe you should have an ID to vote. One problem with requiring ID though, is that your creating another hurdle for those who move often, or don't have an ID, thus they will be less likely to vote.
I think it would be fun just to look at people's drivers license pictures...and to see if it looks like their weight is correct.
