10. Well this year, my mother had to jump through hoops to get her DL *and* to register to vote in MN.
She had to make multiple trips back to the DMV to fetch documents to satisfy the criteria to whoever was standing behind the counter at that time. The documents included: a new birth certificate that she had to purchase (from another state), even though she had her original birth certificate with the original envelope with the 1930's post mark (it wasn't good enough for the "new" criteria, even though it has sufficed for her whole life until teabagamerica) and her marriage license even though she's been a widow for 35 years etc. Had she not had her children to help out, she would be out of luck. This was brought about by the republicans who claim that out system is rife with voter fraud. So- the joke fell flat with me.
