  • RI driver's license
  • US passport
  • ID card issued by US educational institution
  • US military identification card
  • State of Rhode Island or US government issued ID card

"Waltzing in"? How insulting. This whole rush to pass ID laws by the Presidential election has NOTHING to do with voter fraud, and EVERYTHING to do with the fact that It might cut down the demographics of those who tend to vote Democratic. Do not think we are fooled.
