Today I took my son to get his DL changed from Ga to Fl.
Here we go.  He had lost his actual social security card BUT  he had his Hewett Jackson tax returns.  His certified birth certificate.   He had had two forms of physical address and his bank statement.. all of which showed his social security number,   The number was good enough for the IRS but not the DMV.

They had access to his Ga  DL and his other Florida DL from years ago and they issued a temporary DL BUT could not register to vote.   They had his old DL up on screen from the year 2000 before it was transferred to Ga.  They had the Ga DL...Give me a break !!!! Pictures and all.  He is 43 not 19.

Ocala was the closest social security office.  It is now shut down.  60 0r more miles to get a social security card.  He lost is card in a lake and with all of those valid numbers.   Now the next question.  Do you have a passport?  My reply..Come on..
He can't drive around the block legally and you want to know if he can leave the country via passport?  My son was nice.  I was pissed.  I told her.. "Hey I know what is happening here ..King Scott put this in effect after he got elected right?"
The answer was yes.   I again said, "He can temporarily drive for 30 days until the proper papers are shown but can't register to vote.  That was an affirmative.

Do you really think Florida is not going to make it damn near impossible to get all the papers in order.  Then I was so mad I could not see straight.  She knew what car he drove in 1999  from that DL in Florida...Gonna tell me she didn't know he voted Dem last election.  Where are your papers please.  She looked a bit uncomfortable when I was throwing questions out there.  Never smiled.  Reminded me of some Nazi intake person.  This is where you register to vote.
Wait till they compare our signatures on election day.  How many handwriting analysis are onboard.  None I venture to say.

I knew it would be bad.  I had to show my marriage license to get my DL.  What a bunch of crap.  UPDATEIf you are a Florida resident.  Please check link and be sure about your state photo ID or DL...  DMV info

Where does this leave the nursing home folks?  The homeless?  The unemployed ?  

Voter ID requirements
At the polls, you will be asked to provide a valid picture identification with signature. The following photo ids will be accepted:

Florida driver’s license
Florida identification card issued by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles
United States passport
Debit or credit card
Military identification
Student identification
Retirement center identification
Neighborhood association identification
Public assistance identification.
If your photo identification does not contain your signature, you will be asked to provide an additional identification that includes a signature.

If you do not have the proper identification, you will be provided with a provisional ballot. Your provisional ballot will count if the signature on the provisional ballot envelope matches the signature on your voter registration application.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
