Dunno, maybe it's more of a dye. Or any solvent strong enough to remove it isn't anything you'd want on your skin...
To: null and void
Either way, it's a simple and clever approach to a problem that seems to befuddle modern democracies. I simply don't see the problem of providing a photo ID when you go to vote. Somehow, every other transaction from cashing a check to buying a 6 of beer requires ID ... but strangely, the most important -- electing a government -- is so sacrosanct that asking for photo ID is a big deal. And isn't it ironic how the Democrats don't mind everyone getting a national ID card ... but they're damned if photo ID will be required to vote. Wouldn't want to scare off their illegals, children, and dead voters. Eventually, there will be a battleground over voting reform. It may not come now or even in a couple years ... but it's coming. We are going to undergo such a seismic shift in voting demographics that one of two things has to happen: Either parties are going to change radically -- or they're going to have to get a tighter control over the voter rolls.
