  •  More Like a National Voter Registration Card (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    I'm not in favor of a national ID, but I think the federal government should issue a voter registration card to everyone who has voted in a previous national election. This would be automatic (based on voting records where people already sign in to vote) and states would be required to accept them as proof of eligibility for national elections.

    See here for more details.

    This would eliminate the voter roll purges that have been going on without creating a huge expense for poor people or complications for people that don't have driver's licenses or birth certificates. It grandfathers in everyone who's been voting, so that you don't have millions of people in limbo casting provisional ballots, even though they may have been voting in elections for the past 80 years.
