Permissive

Virginia’s State Board of Elections changed the definition of the word “valid” in the state’s voter ID law to allow voting with an expired identification card.

Unbelievable! It doesn’t also include “had a note from his mother?”

  1. I must be missing something here…does your state’s ID suddenly lose its picture after it passes its expiration date? Can you reprogram it to show a different name once the old one expires?

  2. The “expired” means “hasn’t paid the current rent” and you are not allowed to drive until you do.

    The “Identify” function dies only with surrender in a court action, although they may decline to verify the ID if he rent has not been paid.

  3. I take it the redefining of the word “Valid” in Virginia only applies to the use of an expired license for purposing of voter ID, and for nothing else. The legal problem is mission creep where some smart lawyer takes this “Use” and tries to get it expanded into other areas. Nose. Camel. You know. My guess is that the state didn’t want to spring any money to provide “Valid” non-Driver’s license ID to all the voters.
