But you do need a valid ID to buy booze. You need it to pick up prescription medication, either for yourself or for someone in your care or household. You need an ID to buy cigarettes or tobaccos.
And all for good reason too, just like you should need a valid ID to vote. If voting by mail, provide a valid DL/ID number.
I fail to see how that simple requirement is "voter suppression". That's BS. The only people it suppresses is either someone trying to cast a fraud ballot, or it suppresses completely lazy people who want to give zero effort to having their voice counted. If you're not willing to put forth an ounce of effort, why should your vote count?
gives the state legislature much more power to reform voting laws, rules and penalties, almost unilaterally. You know, the same kind of laws that Trump and his team squawked about during the 2020 election in Pennsylvania, calling them “unconstitutional.”
If I remember correctly, at least as it related to Georgia and some other states, was the Secretary of State unilaterally made changes to how ballots could be cast, randomly mass mailed out, and/or increasing drop boxes. MAYBE the COVID19 concerns were enough for an "emergency declaration" of such sorts (those who wanted to expand the ease of voting to people who typically are too damn lazy to be bothered with voting, or increase the possibility of fraud ballots likely took advantage of the situation), but any more permanent changes should not be done unilaterally by one elected official.
Such changes should be done via statute. The SOS office can offer up what they think the rule changes should be, have their department's attorney write up a bill for a state legislator to sponsor, then have it go through the legislative process with full House & Senate floor debates and committee hearings.
