Voter-ID laws continue to get a lot of attention, and proponents of the law are being drowned out by opponents claiming the laws discriminate against certain voters.

Rather than getting IDs to the people who are supposedly disenfranchised, opponents spend their efforts trying to end the laws, even though polls consistently show overwhelming majorities of voters approve of the laws.

Below are just some of the examples of things you need to prove your identity for:

1. Alcohol

 

2. Cigarettes

 

3. Opening a bank account

 

4. Apply for food stamps

 

5. Apply for welfare

 

6. Apply for Medicaid/Social Security

 

7. Apply for unemployment or a job

 

8. Rent/buy a house, apply for a mortgage

 

9. Drive/buy/rent a car

 

10. Get on an airplane

 

11. Get married

 

12. Purchase a gun

 

13. Adopt a pet

 

14. Rent a hotel room

 

15. Apply for a hunting license

 

16. Apply for a fishing license

 

17. Buy a cell phone

 

18. Visit a casino

 

19. Pick up a prescription

 

20. Hold a rally or protest
