Should a photo ID be required to vote?

If you need a photo ID to buy a pack of cigarettes or a 6-pack of beer … why not to vote?

There is an interesting debate going on over on my Facebook page.




I asked this question, “If you need a photo ID to fly on a plane, why not require one to vote in elections? What do you think?”






So far 57 people have shared their opinions both for and against.  I’d like to hear what you have to say.






Several people pointed out that we have to have a photo ID to cash a check, take money out of our own bank account, purchase a gun, buy a pack of cigarettes or a bottle of beer, take the ACT test and the list goes on and on. So why not to vote?
