Yeah, but that would disenfranchise all the illegal aliens and dead people.

I see what you mean, that would take away about half of the democratic voting pool.

Is it racist these days? I was still under the impression that it happened so infrequently that anybody who cared about preventing it was a moron worthy of a confused Jon Stewart cutback look. My traditional, ignorant brain just can't keep up with the times.

The most common argument I hear is the one that @iamjanesleftnipple made in this thread: they can't leave work to get an ID.

The interesting part of that is that getting a job requires ID - proof that you are who you say you are and can legally work in this country. For people without a US passport that means some form of government issued photo ID and your birth certificate and Social Security card. The same three pieces of ID that would indicate you are a citizen eligible to vote.

Lets consider this point. If they can't leave work to get an ID, then they can't drive a car, can't purchase property, can't buy alcohol, and are working at a job that requires no ID to work there (so basically a minimum wage job). Why do we want these people with NOTHING invested in society voting????

Many places I've worked (especially minimum wage) only needed the SSN. Granted that was a long time ago, but I've had that card since I was born so I didn't need to do anything else to have it.

Why don't you have to show a birth certificate to file for office?

I love living in a small town. I can pick up my kids from school whenever I want. I can walk right into their class and get them if I want to but they don't like that much and I try to accommodate them because they work hard for my kids.

Anyway I believe you are correct. Voting is a privilege and duty of citizens and citizens only. If you are not a citizen of a country you should not have any ability to vote in it's elections. The main reason for this is to encourage immigrants to assimilate and join our society rather than form micro societies of their own.

Driving is a privilege, Voting is a right just like the right to bear arms.
