For most of us, we have a drivers license, we know you can get a license-like ID even if you don’t drive, and we wonder what the big fuss is about. NPR has a lucid story on who doesn’t have ID’s and why. Generally, the elderly and young adults, and because they may live far from a state agency or paradoxically, may lack the ID required to get an ID.
I know two people who had difficulty getting IDs after loosing vital records. It’s not always as easy as a lot of us think it is.
