    Register said car
    Join the military
    Serve as a public servant
    Cash a check
    Write a check
    Use a credit card (sometimes)

    Can the cost of getting an id made be construed as a "poll tax?"

    yes, it can.

    that's why vote id laws specify that id be available for no cost.

    It is only a burden for liberals, because a law such as that obviously just targets one specific ideology.

    None of the activities listed by Murked, with all due respect, is a basic Constitutional right. VOTING may change those privileges; thus VOTING is the most fundamental right. (Florida charges for photo ID, INCLUDING sharply increased charges for DL, in the last ten years.)

    Funny how the right to bear arms is just as constitutional as the right to vote, but if you want to purchase a firearm you must provide a photo ID to prove who you are.
    Funny how the right to free speech is just as constitutional as the right to vote, but if you want to open your own radio station you not only have to prove who you are, but you have to pay for the license to broadcast.
