The comment about not having the aptitude to pass a driving test is actually a dig at me, reasonably so as I failed 4 times and then quit. However as I understood it you don’t specifically need a driving licence to vote, you just need photo ID. In order to obtain the majority of photo IDs you are not required to demonstrate any kind of skill, but there is likely to be a cost involved, which I would have thought is the more relevent factor here. Incidentally, does anyone know if they have provisional driving licences with photos in the US like we do in the UK, and is that accepted as a form of ID? If so, then surely the cost, use and ability to drive a car is a total red herring?
