The Chattanooga Times Free Press reported the new process for licenses is being piloted at the Hamilton County Clerk's office, as well as two driver service centers in Sumner and Robertson counties.
It will involve checking the identity of people who apply for or renew their licenses, and means people will leave with a paper interim license while their photo is run through a database and checked against 12 million other images. A plastic laminated copy of their driver's licenses will be mailed to their address.
Lori Bullard, assistant commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security, said the added safety measure will help crack down on fraud and identity theft.
They have been doing this in Colorado for quite a while
A good first step to prevent voter fraud, however can it be also a first step in “Show me your Papers” National ID act??
I live in Sumner County, and I can tell you this is no National ID act. We love America.
“A good first step to prevent voter fraud, however can it be also a first step in Show me your Papers National ID act??”
12 million other images? From where? Facebook? High-school yearbooks on Classmates.com? Security camera video from the Piggly-Wiggly??
It looks like some sort of background check is coming for guns. And we all know that voter fraud is rampant.
I wonder if we couldn’t use driver licenses/state IDs to fix both.
Like a simple checkbox on a drivers license or ID that shows you are not prohibited from carrying a firearm and you are or are not legally able to vote.
There’d be no need for gun dealers to record a transaction - just verify that they sold to someone with a state ID that didn’t have a gun prohibition.
Likewise, when voting, you would show an ID that verified you were a citizen.
Let the states manage it as they do with D/Ls.
I realize this isn’t ideal, but it takes the Leftists gun background check and throws it right back in their face as a voter ID check. As long as there’s no mandate to record what weapons were purchased, then it wouldn’t be registration. If the Leftists want effective gun purchase identification, they’d have to have effective voting identification.
The National ID act has already been done it’s called SS#s.
