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?

Well, er, my father has no ID and is tethered to a large cement chair in the living room, and if he stands up from the chair it sets off explosives in the local kitty and puppy shelter. Why do you want to disenfranchise my father?!
