Valid Photo ID to vote
 

IT IS IMPERATIVE VIGINIA RESIDENTS PRESENT A VALID PHOTO I.D. WHEN THEY VOTE  IN ANY ELECTION. A VALID ID MEANS IT IS NOT EXPIRED.  IT GIVES SOMEONE'S FULL FACE  IN THE PHOTO, THEIR NAME AND LOCAL ADDRESS IN VIRGINIA.

IT IS SHAMEFUL THE CURRENT STATE BOARD OF ELECTIONS WOULD  PROPOSE TO DILUTE THE MEANING OF 'VALID.' DOING THIS PROVES THE CURRENT BOARD DOES NOT CARE ABOUT PROPERTY OWNERS IN VIRGINIA, NOR ALL THE LOCAL TAX PAYERS, BOTH RICH AND POOR.

INVALID VOTER PHOTO IDs OPEN UP THE STATE TO MASSIVE POLITICAL ABUSE.  MANY WOULD CONTEND THIS IS ALREADY HAPPENING. 

PRESENTING A GENERAL PHOTO ID TO QUALIFY FOR GOVERNMENT SUBSIDIES AND BENEFITS IS ONE THING. BUT TO VOTE IN VIRGINIA ITS CITIZENS MUST HAVE A VALID (CURRENT) PHOTO AND VIRIGINIA ADDRESS. NO EXCEPTIONS. 

YOU CANNOT BE BURIED WITHOUT SOMEONE IN YOUR FAMILY PERSONALLY IDENTIFYING YOU AND PRESENTING YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER TO THE FUNERAL HOME. THE LEAST EACH OF US CAN DO IS TO SHOW A CURRENT-VALID PHOTO ID  WITH A VIRGINIA ADDRESS WHEN WE VOTE. 

WHO DOES THIS STATE BOARD OF ELECTIONS THINK THEY'RE KIDDING?
