Editorial In the United States, state and local authorities are in charge of voting and the country uses more than a half dozen different voting technologies. As a result, the country can't guarantee that it accurately counts national votes in a timely fashion. This article discusses the problem and potential solutions to the U.S. voting dilemma.

really? you dont need iD when you are doing banking? opening a utility account? having your computer repaired at apple store(ha, had to show my ID in Augusta) getting ripped off at those pay day cash advance places. I can name many number of places that require photo id just to survive in this society

I think you missed the point. The original poster made the erroneous statement that every state in the US requires citizens to have a state issued ID. That is simply not true, and that was what I was saying.

Private entities requiring you to show proof of ID has zero to do with state law and was not in question.
