Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org Do you know where your passport is? Do you have one? Do you know where your birth certificate is? How about your marriage license? In Missouri, and probably more states to come, some law makers want you to prove your citizenship before you can register to vote. This is clearly an attempt to stop the hoards of Mexicans and Canadians who stream over our borders each Nov. just to vote in our elections; or more likely just an attempt to keep some people from the polls. If you don't have a birth certificate you have to pay to get a copy. If you are a woman and married the birth certificate is not enough; you need a marriage license to prove your maiden name. Can't afford the copies if you don't have them? You don't vote. Born without a birth certificate? You don't vote. Birth certificate or marriage license originals no longer exist because of fire, flood, hurricane (Katrina, Rita)? You don't vote. Who is affected? The poor, people of color, citizens with disabilities, homeless. This has got to stop....
