    the no address requirement in the ALEC Model bill? I was wondering if ALEC left out to make sure gun owners could easily vote, i.e., conspiring with NRA.

    What am I missing .... ???

    Thank you.

      ... was not directed at specific forms of ID (SS card, student ID, driver's license, gun permit) but rather that an "acceptable ID" under the model bill is not required to have an address (that is, it's not one of the four criteria).  If the purpose of the bill is to prevent voter fraud, then it seems to me that a valid address would be necessary to ensure that the individual was voting in the appropriate city/county/district/state.
