20. No taxation without representation

My personal feeling is someone should be able to show up with a receipt from the last month showing taxes paid. Sales, tax, paycheck stub, anything. Give everyone the purple thumb so they can't vote twice.

edit to add, yes, I know I'm way out on the fringe on this one.

Another obstacle - paperless billing is making it difficult for people to prove their current address. LonePirate May 13 #1

On its face, requiring some kind of ID to vote isn't terrible. Canada does it and it seems to work. Jedi Guy May 13 #14
