When I came back to WI, my only form of ID was a long expired out of state DL. They used that and found me in their system as I already had an WI DL (about 10 years earlier), so w/in 15 minutes, I had a new WI DL in my hand.

The DNR also tracks DLs, same with DMV. They knew which state I had my last DL in.

The only problem I could possibly see is if someone just moved here from planet x and has no form of identification, birth certificate. If the person is of voting age and has no ID/DL or BC, then the best thing they can do for themselves is to get one as one can't cash a check, rent a video, rent a place to live, go into a bar, buy cigarettes, etc. w/o one.
Need an ID to donate blood.

Very elderly people potentially COULD fall into the 'no ID category', it'd be so extremely rare, it wouldn't make any sense to put the voting system in jeopardy just because of, what, 5 people in WI? If you don't agree with that, then you should also agree to have a mandated max speed limit of 35 m/h and governors put in every vehicle that limits vehicles to that speed.
Why? Because, that will save a lot of lives. Really.
The trade-offs of some things just are in no way worth it.

The last "no ID" category is the hardcore homeless. These people have been out on the streets for a while and the last thing they're interested in is going to vote--unless one of those SEIU union vans are picking them up and taking them to vote....
In the case of these homeless, there are agencies (mostly churches) that will help them get their lives back together, get an ID, etc.

Finally....won't people need a DL/ID to get obamacare's socialized medicine? lol.

:shock: I guess so....right next to that tub of free welfare (EBT) cash cards. Go in, get a government rectal exam, grab a handful of welfare cash cards on the way out, then trade them for crack, booze and reefer. Do again the next day, but ask for a different procedure as the taxpayers are the ones getting the full rectal intrusion in obamacare.

Then how are all those illegal aliens supposed to get their doctor's visit paid for?

There is nothing in Obamacare that says an ID is required. People can just sign up for their "free" health care without having to prove who they are.

No where in that link does it say that an ID will be required to get the "free" Obamacare.

Hate? What is so hateful about pointing out what isn't in a link?

Hate is when a group of thugs trash the capitol.
Hate is when people throw beers on elected officials.
Hate is when teachers fake illnesses so they can protest against the government while still getting paid by the government.

Sounds like you' d also hate the founding fathers and everything they did.

No one trashed the capitol. You're lying.
One person threw one beer on one elected official, not beers. You lied again.
Why should teachers love it when government officials steal from their benefits/paychecks, to support out of state campaign donors?

I get it now. You hate the truth.
