When you go to vote, you've been registered in advance, and they check your name off of a list. If you live in MD or VA, you can't vote in DC.

When you go to get sandbags, there is no pre-registration. Besides ensuring you are a DC resident, I imagine the ID requirement is also to prevent someone from getting their bags, going to the back of the line, and getting more.

These ends are also accomplished by pre-registration in voting but we don't put that beauracracy in front of sandbag distribution.
