    Hey.. I am all for registering the morning of the election.. as long as you have photo ID proof of who you are, where you live, etc

    You're obviously a big city fella. I personally know EVERY election judge in my precinct and they KNOW where I live. They wouldn't dare or need to ask me for my photo ID. And if they refused the neighborhood grandma (that they all know too) the right to vote because she didn't have a photo ID there would be HELL to pay.

    i've never had to show an id to vote, ever. small town, 20,000 people been here, well, a long time. :D

    the old law in maine was 2 days as opposed to same day, and it was on the honor system, whatever that means.

    now that i think of it, the first time i ever voted was in maine, 1972.

    they didn't ask me for an id then, iirc.

    Then that tells me that there's a REASON they require YOU to produce an ID.

    Yeah I live in a small town too--I can walk in say high to 3 election judges I know--and they refer to me by my name--BUT--if I don't show them a photo I.D--they'll tell me to go home and get it. No I.D.--No Ballot.

    No assumption. Just trying to figure out WHY you would bother showing your ID at all.

    Voting in Maryland - How to Vote in Maryland - Voter Registration in Maryland - Where to Vote in Maryland

    Maryland Attorney General

    I can just see you proudly handing your photo ID to the election judge that probably changed your diapers when you were a baby. And I can see that election judge and the people behind you thinking, "What is Davey doing? That boy never was quite right in the head."

    So if you're from Maryland and really live in a small town of 300 people for 12 years I'm calling bullshit that you even show an ID.
