Why is ID checking against the law?! And, what happens if someone comes and
votes under my name and then I come to vote? They don't let me vote?! And
they don't know who was voting instead of me and how he voted. That means
that his vote still counts and mine does not. I find that quite strange.

So you volunteer at the polls? Does that mean that you do not get paid? Is
that the practise in whole US?
