This forum has a long history, by interent standards anyway-unfortunately it has been abandoned for far too long due to real life circumstances knocking the heck out of what had been my very real desire to keep this board alive and well forever so that all of us could meet here and communicate with each other everyday.

I'm not sure that a forum like this is even needed nowadays since the advent of facebook, etc...but I hope that this once thriving BB does bring some of us back together again and that maybe some new folks will join us as well!

My Question is???????????

Should the Homeless be allowed to vote? Most here in Florida do carry picture ID cards issued by the State but have no address.

In fact I have two RVN Vets in my Vet. Group that live in their vans, both have DLs, Gov. Issued IDs, pay auto insurance but have no real home address. They say that they can't vote because of no address.

Should these people be allowed to vote?

Re: My Question is???????????

Yes they should be allowed to vote and have every right to vote.

where do they get their mail?

Re: My Question is???????????

I believe that some ounties in some states have provisions for the homeless to vote. I know that it is an issue that has been brought up in Cook county, IL.

Re: My Question is???????????


The Vets have PO Boxes but I guess that the Vote address requirements are you must have a Street Address.

Re: My Question is???????????

In Montana a box number serves as a address because it is an address. even just the name of the locality a person lives in is enough. there a lot of small communitys that do not have street addresss.
Of course each state can decide its requirements . That is the states perogative.

Re: My Question is???????????

Good point Duane: As long as this is where your receive your mail, and it is shown on your ID, it should be considered valid.
Of course every locale has different circumstances. I would imagine that in your, neck-of-the-woods, something like C/O Smith Ranch CR6 Custer Co. WYO. Would work as an adress. In urban areas we have to be a little more specific. A typical nieghborhood may have 100,000 residents. In this case I would say a PO box would work - PROVIDED that is the address listed on your drivers license or state ID.
