Ninety-five percent (95%) of respondents say they support paper ballots, one-day voting, and voter ID requirements for Election Day. Add in the 4% who support at least part of the measures, and a full 99% of people favor making voting more restricted.
That's according to the latest unscientific poll of 2,206 people at SharylAttkisson.com.
Voter identification laws require voters to present some form of identification in order to vote at the polls.
Currently 36 states have laws requesting or requiring voters to show some form of identification at the polls.
Nebraska is the newest state to enact a voter ID law after a citizen initiative requiring photo ID passed in the Midterm elections last November.
The remaining 14 states and D.C. use controversial and less reliable methods to verify the identity of voters, including verifying signatures against file information.

Serialized paper ballots with color shifting ink, fluorescent imbedded fibers and watermarks. Proof of citizenship and a thumbprint on the ballot.

Now isn't that a novel idea!!!
Where did USA go wrong?
I'd say the 2020 election with the front being Covid19. Well folks that's not an excuse now.
Lets back to LEGAL elections with verifiable voting.

First one needs to register! To vote, go to the designated voting location, and the district desk (there can be several districts at the same location). There is an information desk for those who did not know or had forgotten their district number. This is a natural place to pick up problems, because they ask for your name and address - no identification. Any suspicion, a police presence is nearby. At the district desk where you receive your ballot, name and address again, a natural process; how can one be offended, they need that to check off that you have your paper ballot; it is by your registered affiliation - party or independent. After voting your ballot goes into a vote counting box. Ballots are also mailed to all registered voters: mail it, drop it off, take it to your polling place, drop it there, or destroy it, and receive a new ballot to vote on-site. Seems too simple, but it works! You are on your way; you have done your duty.
I was thinking that voter ID should go on the 2024 ballot in all states.
Those voting NO to voter ID may indicate an illegal voter; or a far left democrat.
From Sharyl's survey even most democrats want honest elections.
Just be careful what you wish for. If you put something on the ballot in ALL states, it might put us closer to a federalization of elections. Do you want that?
