A poll tax
In "Photo ID" (Forum, Aug. 31), Gary Teran argued in favor of requiring identification at the voting booth because we require it at airports, for passports, to drive a car and even at Costco.
There are a lot of citizens in this country who don't have a driver license, a passport, fly on airplanes or go to Costco. This describes my 92-year-old mother, who has voted in every election since 1941.
It sounds like Teran would like to go back to the good old days when, in order to vote, a person had to own property or be able to afford to pay a poll tax. It's Teran who's living in a fantasy. A dark fantasy.
