You need to be 18 to vote and need proper I.D. to prove you are old enough. Just like going to a bar, buying cigarettes or alcohol, people well into their 30's have to show I.D. On the grounds of age alone I.D. should be necessary. Women and African Americans who were CITIZENS had to fight for their right to vote. It's completely degrading to all they went through to just allow ANYONE show up and vote.
