Assuming a voter ID is required everywhere and is it's own piece of documentation (separate from driver's license/state ID/passport/etc...) should it expire and require updating or is it issued for life?
My friend said his sons are still on the rolls here to vote even though they moved years ago. They wrote twice to get it removed but they still there! They both live out of state.
Only update when you move and maybe every 10 years
Update every 10 years with the census. And when you move.
It should be updated to verify residency.
Or make sure your not dead.
It needs to be updated if you move and as your looks change
Assuming it is a picture ID, it should be updated periodically.
Update the picture every 5-10 years.
Not a complete list but it's amazing how many states offer free voter ID's!
Why would it expire?
So that dead people couldn't vote
Voter fraud isn't a problem that needs fixing. The problems with voter disenfranchisement and voter IDs is far worse than the fraud problem IDs would be implemented to solve.
Name a single election that was swayed by dead people voting. Just one.
It is not proven that dead people have swayed an election but i think there were quite a few dead people votes in 2008
Al Franken won by voter fraud.
His first election. Non-citizens cast over 4,000 votes. Franken won by about 2,000.
I think a photo ID would need to be updated...maybe every 10 years? or so. Also for change of address or name change.
I would think forever but restricted to a specific district and state. If you move you would have to have it updated.
