My father, age 93. My father-in-law, age 89. Neither has a valid "government approved" ID. Both cannot use public transportation, nor can they drive. So unless you are bringing the "government" to them, they are, by definition, disenfranchised.


That's what children are for. Why don't you drive them to get their IDs or arrange for someone else to drive them if you cannot do it?


My elderly mom never did drive so I drive her to the local DMV to get her ID and she needs a wheelchair to get about if she has to walk more than 100 feet or so.

You people are worried that photo IDs will reduce voter fraud and quite possibly the number of elections that Democrats win.
