    Having a permanent address is not a requirement to vote. Homeless people are allowed to put down the shelter they are staying at or even the bridge they are sleeping under on the registration form.

    And the only people who wonder why it's so difficult to get an ID is not based on party, it's based on class. A whole bunch of clueless rich and middle class Democrats sneer at the poor just as much as the Republicans.

      Thats the reason for a DISCUSSION where people exchange ideas to provoke in others a need ot consider something or educate ourselves from responses we get.
      It's amazing how some of you who claim to be liberal can be just as assuming of people's intentions just as much as the right wingers I know.

      Get this.  A lot of people do not know the poor. I have hung around poor circles though. So I am hardly sheltered. I have hung around broke drug addicts even though I am clean myself. Just to learn about differnt people. That means I am expected to be an expert on homeless voting and such?
      I know when I changed states, I could not vote because I was not registered. So I wondered how homeless who are less in touch with such stuff than I am manage to vote if they decide to?
