Marking Texas as "photo ID requested" is disingenuous.
Is the requirement more or less than described?
Why would you say that?
Texas does a good job of documenting state laws. I encourage you to do your own research instead of taking the word of some schmuck on the internet. Which appears to include the National Congress of State Legislatures.Photo ID is required except when the voter can prove a hardship that prevents getting a state-issued-but-not-college photo ID. In other words, for the vast majority of Texans, especially college students, photo ID is a requirement. "Strict Photo ID" is a more accurate description.I should have included: "voting in person". However, the last time I tried to vote absentee the state failed to send a ballot. From my perspective, voting in person is required to actually participate.
Failure to register on the electoral roll or supplying false information can result in a £1000 fine.
The nationality is required to determine which elections the person is entitled to vote in. UK and Irish nationals are eligible to vote in all elections (we have a reciprocal arrangement with the Republic of Ireland. I can and have voted in an Irish election when I lived there), EU nationals are eligible to vote in only some elections (local authority and EU parliamentary, but not national parliamentary elections). I don't know how this will change after the proposed brexit. Obviously, we won't have EU parliamentary elections.
Mandatory reading;https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2000_United_States_presidential_election_recount_in_FloridaMandatory viewing;Go to Youtube, search for "cgp grey electoral college" and take a look at all the videos on voting schemes e.g. "The Problems with First Past the Post"Postal voting is of course wide open to abuse, an individual may dominate a household and gangs can coerce larger numbers.
Electronic voting is problematic because the counting is invisible and software could be rigged, manual checking needs to be possible.Photo ID only proves that somebody has ID that has their photo on it, it does not prove that the ID is valid or that the person is actually entitled to vote.
My leading idea at the moment is to implement a system where you have to scan your ID to cast your vote. Police officers can run your drivers license for car information; I feel like there could be a way to use this idea in voting (hopefully minimally invasive).
For me, you are creating a solution without a problem. In fact, most of the "voting fraud" that has been been verified, and not just Trumped™️ up, involves not counting votes that should have been counted.
Also, i did not need my ID to vote in VA in the midterms or presidential elections...
You don't rig the system you rig the people. Eg, "you don't gotta burn the books you just remove them"....
....Interestingly enough, I just discovered that the country of Estonia has an e-voting system that 30% of citizens use, along with 99% of their public services available online as well... Whether those numbers are true or not, and what services actually are provided online is beyond me (I have to look into this more). ...
