It is not practical for many elderly persons, who not have driver's licenses or jobs, to go to either an election office or DMV to get a valid voter ID.
To reach goal of visually identifying voters, the law should be altered to allow voter a registration cards with space for a personal facial photo (similar to a passport photo), signiture lines, and a requirement for notary stamp and signature. If considered necessary, a requirement could be added that the notoary stamp cover a portion of the photo to preclude changing photos. Notaries are sworn officers of the court so integrity should not be a problem. The purpose of a notary is to fix a personal identification to a document, which is consist with the goals of the voter photo ID law.
I've been informed this is not consistent with current law.
