In case you don’t know, the 24th Amendment to the US constitution forbids poll taxes. In other words, the federal government and states cannot make you pay to vote.
Then more recently in Michigan where I live, I heard a bill in the Michigan legislature is going to allow people to register to vote online. Only stipulation is you have to have a driver’s license or state ID.
Now I don’t know if this requirement applies to other forms of voting in Michigan. But I have heard anecdotal stories about other states. In fact there was this one story a military man tried to vote in one state using his military ID. And they said No.
Now drivers licenses and state ID’s aren’t free. They both cost money. My question then, is do they violate the twenty-fourth amendment? Certainly at least in spirit?
Mind you, am not trying to ride my moral high horse. I’m just wondering.
Thank you in advance for your kindly and civil replies:).
