    It is called a poll tax.  You shouldn't have to pay to get an ID just so you can vote.  Having a current picture ID can be often  problematic - this applies to octogenarians in nursing homes and students and people who moved on November 1st and don't have a drivers' license with their current address...  In the 80's my grandmother didn't even drive until my grandfather died when she was 70 years old, and he took care of the finances so she never needed an ID.  This may not be your life decision but it was hers.

    I really need a new signature that is lofty enough for DK4 - but I just haven't eaten enough arugula and sipped enough lattes to come up with one today. Sorry folks!
