Actually I don't know anyone without an ID of some kind. But I'm in the UK. Voter ID is a drivers licence, passport. You need an ID to vote here in Northern Ireland but we actually did have a problem with voter fraud here before then but we have actual convicted terrorists in our goverment. The IRA would take people to different polling stations to get people to vote using stolen cards. They weren't the only ones at it the loyalists where too

This is too messed up. You should have an ID document that is issued to you when you turn 18 (or 21, whatever), and it should be legally required of every citizen to have an ID at all times, no matter if they're going to vote or not. It works in every other country (at least in Eu), why can't it work in USA? This is ridiculous..

A lot of people don't seem to realise that in the UK (where John is from) you don't need ID to vote at all. You don't even have to bring a polling card, you turn up, tell them your name and if you're registered they give you the voting card and then you vote.

Wait what? Without an ID, how do you even prove you're a citizen? Does it mean as a tourist I can go vote in the US? And how can it be so hard to get an ID in a developed country? That should be the issue here. You need an ID for so many things: if there is discrimination, if it is hard to get an ID for poor people or other, THAT should be the issue, not voting without it!

I live in PA and I registered through the mail right before the 08 election, a few months before my 19th birthday. I don't drive or have ID, and I'm glad my state doesn't require one. I tried getting a state ID, just like Mrs. Clark in the video, and I was also turned down because I didn't have all the proper documentation. It really is a miserble process, at least in PA. I was worried about not being able to vote, despite being legally registered, simply because I didn't have a photo ID. I also lost my original birth certificate in a house fire, and that is near impossible to replace. I don't know about other states, but in PA, if you have your voter registration, it says right on the paper that it is an acceptable form of identification. Why would they send you registration cards at all with that on them if you needed additional ID to vote?

Speaking as a foreigner, it is very hard for me to grasp even the concept of this problem. In Croatia, we have ID cards everywhere we go. Not having one is a misdemeanor, even if you are buying milk, not to mention voting. It costs 1000 kn (approximately 200 $) if you are caught without it when cops ask. Of course, they very rarely do, but just in case, people always have their ID cards. With pictures. They are not hard to make. Everyone over 16 can and over 18 must have one. Those cards are presented in the case of voting. Driver's licence is another thing entirely and the only time it counts is if you are managing a wheel. While most adult Croatians do drive, it is not by far so uncommon for an adult not to have ever been on a driver's exam. And even with obligatory voter ID, we do have dead voters voting frauds much common than normal person would think. So, while my heart is with Democrats in wanting to help the poor and minorities, my brain is with the Republicans since having voter ID is something that comes most natural in my culture.

I think you missed the problem here. We seem to have a terrible system for getting an ID. We need that to be fixed, once that's done a voter ID law wouldn't discriminate against anyone. You also seem to be acting like the effects you mentioned are intentional, which is one hell of a claim to make.

Wow..so in the US you don't need an ID to vote?!! That came as such a surprise to me.. I am from India and my voter's ID is one of the first official documents I got once I turned 18. It's really not such a big deal. Maybe you need a better system for getting the IDs.

I would be fine with a voter ID law... if and only if the state handed out FREE IDs to every citizen. The Republicans have an obvious agenda. When a gun license counts in some states, but a student ID does not, it becomes very clear that Republicans are doing this to make it so less voters likely to vote Democrat have the ability to vote. If people don't see this as a ploy, they're blind. It's the equivalent of a poll tax and goes against the values Republicans love to preach in the Constitution. Besides that, there are plenty of reasons a lot of people don't have IDs: -not everyone drives or can afford a car, so their travel is limited to public transport or walking -it costs money to obtain an ID -the records being asked for may be hard to find, lost (especially when it comes to the homeless), and costs money and involves travel to obtain those records if a person does not have them in possession. -if you are poor, you need every hour you can get working in order to survive. When it comes to either eating or sacrificing a day standing in line at the DMV to get an ID to vote, people are more likely to want to earn enough money to eat that day than go to the DMV. My boyfriend didn't drive, so he didn't have a license. At the DMV (in northern VA) he paid $50 to obtain a state ID and he was lucky that it was his original ID and not a new one, or he'd have to pay $50 more. This is in an area where renting 1 room (just a fucking room) costs $500 a month. He was earning $10 an hour. That $50 was all he had for food money and it was a good thing that I was helping him or he may not have gotten a state ID in time to vote. We have to remember that there ARE people in these circumstances who don't have the ability to get an ID. All the same, they do deserve to vote. EVERYONE deserves to vote.

Answer: Make it REALLY easy to get an ID. Require it to vote. Yes: Voter ID laws are used to disenfranchise. Yes: It is important to know who is voting. What the F*** is hard about this? All over Europe, they require an ID and they don't use it to discriminate against non-whites.

I don't understand why the US relies so much on drivers license as a form of ID. Here in Germany every citizen gets so called Personalausweis (an ID card) at 16 but you can actually have it since birth). Not everyone has a drivers licence or wants to have one.

Why is it a big deal to ask people to show some kind of ID when they go to vote? I mean it's something every person should have and if you don't have one how do you prove you're a U.S Citizen? Only U.S citizens should be allowed to vote in U.S elections that will affect the future of the U.S as a nation. I got one when I was 16 it took like 5 minutes and cost $20. And if there're people too poor to afford it then make a government program to issue I.D's to people in low-income homes or homeless shelters. The bottom line if you are not a citizen of a country that is voting you should not be allowed to vote in it simple as that.

Thing is, if you make photo IDs mandatory (to have in general), you can also automatically register people to vote. In the Netherlands you just automatically get sent a piece of paper to confirm you are eligible to vote. You take that and your ID to any voting location in the country and you can vote. Voting can be made really easy, and IDs might even help streamline the process.

This is probably one of the first time I completely disagree with John Oliver. Requiring voters to show their ID (driver's license, passport or something similar) is really just common sense. It's the law in Denmark and here there is a voter turnout of 80%+ every single general election! It's absolutely ridiculous that so many Americans have no ID at all. Get a grip!

This is something I don't understand; why is it so hard to get a photo ID In the states? In Ottawa when I lost my drivers license it took a single 4 hour trip to the DMV to get a new one. Additionally Canada already requires voter ID to cast a vote and it works fine for us.

But... John. Why shouldn't an ID be shown? That means I could, as a tourist, go in and vote if I wanted to? In Europe everyone is expected to always carry an ID, since it contains your personal number (kind of like your social security number) that ties your identity to literally everything. Healthcare, insurance, bills, bank account, birthplace, criminal history, everything.

For the non US commentators who are confused about this, here is how it goes: Most people in the US drive, so this is not a "thing" for most. But, in the spirit of democracy, making ID a requirement when voting is a privilege of being citizen is the "rub".

For everyone who's still confused about voting in America without an ID: No, you cannot just go and vote. You have to register every election year, and you typically have until about a month before the election. In order to register, you NEED(!) a social security number tied to you, otherwise you're not a US citizen and cannot vote. That's why illegal immigrants can't just come in and vote; and that's why voter ID laws are idiotic. It's been proven that voter fraud is rare, because basically no one will risk jail time for one more vote in a country with over 100 million eligible voters. Ironically, the only case of voter fraud I've heard of this year was a woman in Iowa who tried to vote twice because she was afraid her vote would be changed to Clinton. Iowa doesn't have a voter ID law, and guess what? They still caught her!

I still don't get it... People always assume that "photo ID" means "driver's license". I would assume this is similar everywhere, maybe I'm wrong, but Illinois has a separate State ID from our actual driver's license, so even if you have had a DUI and had your license revoked, or if you just never bothered learning how to drive, or can't drive for medical reasons, or whatever, you can still have an ID. I would ASSUME that because it exists in Illinois, other states would have something like it, and if they don't, that's stupid.

Actually no, not everyone has an ID. I went 3 years without an ID. Why? simple mine expired and I don't drive I didn't have a real need to get an ID. Only time I really needed one, a time where I missed having one was when I either was trying to sell books to Half-Price Books or  buy liquor.  This summer I made sure to get an ID for voting purposes.  And no, its not easy.  I don't have a birth certificate (you'd be surprised how many don't) and was born in another state, so it took extra steps and 3 extra weeks after the visit just to get info from Texas. Instead of getting my ID within one month, it took 2 months. I'm glad I went in June to get it so it be here and ready for voting.I would say it may not be easy but its not impossible to get your ID.. but I was an easy case as I never changed my name. I've heard of some people getting IDs that had their former last names written in as a middle name and as such it wouldn't match  papers. Or even a divorced person getting the spouses last name added when they already dropped that last name.

In Germany it is mandatory to have an ID and it is not coupled to the Drivers licence or other documents, so everyone can have one. And of Course you have to identify yourself in order to vote! Otherwise nobody can verify if everything is correct with your vote. But it is clear that if not everyone got an ID like it is in most european countries such a law would be undemocratic!

To be fair, I strongly believe that the US is one of the most fucked up country in the world in some areas, but I would also strongly argue that having an ID is the most basic thing as a citizen and the requirement to show it when you vote is a simple required one. John Oliver likes to compare much of the american systems to the ones in europe, guess what, in most countries in europe if not all, you are required to have your ID when you go to vote.

Usually I agree with his rants, but is it really that much to ask to get an ID?  I don't live in the US and I have to show ID to vote and nobody ever complains about it.  Perhaps it's easier to obtain a valid ID here though?  Nobody is taking away anyone's right to vote.  Everyone has the same right to follow the same process in order to be able to vote.  That being said, I agree voter fraud seems like it wouldn't be much of a problem, and if there is a certain demographic that is more likely to not have an ID, the true intention of this law could be questionable.

I'm from europe, so I don't know the circumstances in the US that well, but if you don't show a photo ID, how could you proof that it is in fact you voting and not an impersonator? I don't think it's so far fetched to have to show a photo ID. But of course it should be easy to get one. Why is it that so many people don't have an ID in the US anyway? Here you get one automatically. I mean you have to renew it every 10 years but that's it.

It makes sense for everyone to have an ID, but not for the reasons given (vote fraud). Here in Luxembourg, by law, you are required to always have a valid ID on you and of course, when we go vote, it is checked. But not to counter fraud. You get checked because of an other law, and the US desperately needs that too, it is illegal here to not go and vote. The people we vote in the government or parlament have to represent us all and the only way to ensure it is by forcing everyone to vote. We also have open votes, you don't have to register for a specific party and you can on the vote sheet pick the option "None". But what most people do is cherry picking, which is an option too. We have all the parties on the sheet with all the candidates or official members that are electable and you can pick 25 people from different parties and give them your vote because while the party as a whole may suck, there could be a single candidate of them who has a reputation of doing the right thing which means represent the people.

For those asking how it is that people don't have photo ids...The government only really offers three forms of photo id: 1) a drivers license, but not everyone does or can drive, plus you have to pay for it (2) A passport, which are really expensive and less than 50% of Americans have one (3) non drivers id, this would be the way to go but in order to get one you have to have access to your birth certificate which not everyone has access to, especially minorities. You have to shell out some cash, cash that not everyone has. So as simple as having a photo ID seems, it's not so easy a gain in America for a lot of people, as John Oliver pointed out in the video. This is a small problem that's part of the bigger systemic problem.

Okay, so John Oliver begins the video by telling us that what's so great about the US is that a president's vote is equal to some nobody's vote, but then later on he acts like one more vote being cast isn't that big of a deal ? I don't get his lax approach to voting at all. It's the bedrock of democracy, so leaving even a small breach in this system is completely horrendous. Plus, if you can't be bothered to get an ID to vote, you obviously don't care much about voting. Though I do understand that the red tape to get an ID is ridiculous. Showing ID should be made mandatory and then the offices will actually have a reason to open up more than every 5th Wednesday. Also, I find the whole bit about minorities really patronizing. I mean, are you saying they're too dumb to get an ID ? Fact is, they're more likely not to have one. Well, if ID's don't matter, it's understandable why they wouldn't get one, but if ID's are made compulsory for voting, i don't really see what would make it more "difficult" for minorities to get one, except maybe racist office clerks, but I don't really know if that's a thing. (Then again, you never know with 'Murrica) Minorities aren't dumb children, John. They can take care of themselves just fine. I'm sure many Europeans are as confused as me as to why this is an issue.

I don't agree with John on this one. It's important to have an ID to secure the integrity and the reliability of voters. What I get from the video is that strangely in an organized country like the US, there needs to be a better management of an identification document for people.

No John it is not hard to get an identification card. Everybody needs a social security number and it comes on a card. I know their is no photos on the SSN card but in lieu of changing the SSN the card it is a form of identification could be used to get a standard state ID. On a second not, all the politicians that are voting for other politicians need to be charged and penalized and be removed from their positions. That in it self is a lack of integrity.

Why is it bad to require an ID I still don't really get it. I see what the lady was going through, it's no different than what I went through when I lost my ID. I mean I have to show my ID to use my bank account. My vote is also a valuable thing what's the problem with protecting it with an ID. How do these people live without IDs I would venture that these people will eventually need an ID to have a life.

Usually like Johns vids but this one is stupid. Of course you should have an ID to vote.

Requiring someone to present ID for something as critical as choosing our local, state and federal leaders is an important requirement. However North Carolina, South Carolina and other states have packed far more into these laws than merely requiring an ID, they've included provisions that discriminate with surgical precision.

This idea is bullshit. Not having an ID in America is unheard of. You need one to have a job. Every single job asks for one.
