Hypothetically, if you randomly ask Americans to show passports to prove citizenship, would everyone be able to?

    We're supposed to believe there are somehow millions of Americans who can't prove citizenship for the purposes of voting, so I'm guessing not.

    Most Americans don't have a passport.

    No. Many Americans don't have passports.

    A passport is needed for international travel, and since the majority of Americans never travel outside the United States, only a small percentage have a valid passport. But the overwhelming majority of Americans could prove their citizenship, whether via birth certificate, passport, or -- the reason we got those -- the new Driver Licenses that are in compliance with the REAL ID Act.

      And incidentally, REAL ID licenses show only status of legal residency, not citizenship.

    Most people do not carry them around so if you allow them to go home, about half would be able to do it.

    No it costs 130 dollars for one, why get one if you don't need one.

      @ Lisa A - I've never seen anyone carry their birth certificate on their person. And on its own, a state ID doesn't prove citizenship.
