  1. The voter ID through the DMV is ridiculous! And throughout the state, there were many told that they must present ID in order to vote. Not true! My son was asked and he told the poll worker, “No. You do not have the right to ask me for ID in this state. I won’t be giving you my ID.” She insisted and told him that he would not be able to vote. He still refused and told her she was wrong- that he would be voting! Another poll worker stepped in and told the woman that she was not allowed to ask him for ID and they gave him his ballot. My son said that everyone in front of him had willingly showed ID. Sheep!
