    Voted today and look what I saw on the door

    We have early voting here this week. US Senate and Rep plus State Senate and Rep and a ballot initiative to establish our own school system and break free from the, coming, unified city/county school system.

    The doors were posted as usual with the "NO WEAPONS" signs. The standard gunbuster sign, a gun with the read circle and slash through it. No big deal there. I expected that. What I did not expect was the other sign that was posted. Tennessee has a voter ID law. (I know, great isn't it? I love that you have to show a picture ID to vote.) There was a sign explaining the different types of ID that you could present so that you could vote. Look at the 5th entry on the list of acceptable picture ID's for voting.

    Yep, you read that correct. We can use our HCP as an official voter ID. And, I did. I had my DL with me of course but I used my HCP. And the sweet little older lady who checked me in even made mentioned that she had seen several of them and loved the fact that so many were out there. She even told me she had hers too.

    I love Tennessee.

    Not allowing a college photo ID is designed to not allow college students the right to vote and is unconstitutional.

    Sweet!!!

    Just curious, did the "gunbuster" sign also include the "verbage substantially similar" to the actual Tenn. code?

    I am glad you got the id law. We got it passed then a Dane county judge got it dropped. It is awaiting the state Supreme court however the judge that sets the agenda will not hear the case until after the Nov 6 election. Looking at recent polls. Most citizens no matter what side of the isle you are on want an Id law. Our state will provide one free if you can't pay the nominal fee.

    Fake college ID's are much too easy to obtain. To vote for government you need a government photo ID. Makes sense to me.

    It has to be a Gov't issued ID. Harder to fake.

    Not even close.

    There are a whole lot of foreign exchange students that are not citizens of this country that have college I.D.s but have no right to vote.

    Any college student with the right ID can vote.

    They don't allow college I.D. as it is not a "State I.D.". A college does not have they level of security attached to the process of issuing I.D. that the State does. But I feel that every state should issue "State I.D. cards" for free. If you need a drivers license you pay for it.

    I can't tell if you're serious or not.

    College IDs are too easy to fake. Mine is nothing more than my picture, my name, and some artwork of our oldest building with "West Virginia University" over it and STUDENT on the side. Anyone with Photoshop and a card printer could make one.

    One citizen, one vote.

    A college ID does not mean you permanent residence is in that state or even you are a US citizen. many foriegn exchange studaents can get a student ID.

    Well IIRC Tx mandated that you need a valid ID to vote and they are being sued by the NAACP and The FEDS saying that it discriminates against the poor and elderly,I call BS anybody with a valid US birth certificate can get a State ID card,what it is against is a bunch of Illegal Aliens from voting in a Country they have no right to vote in,but that would be millions of votes that a certain POTUS woulsn't be getting.
    You can also use a CHL as a form of ID here also
