Voter ID requirements by state

The link above takes you to Electionline.org, a great election reform and information site. It has a list of voter ID laws by state as of 10/17/06. Here's what they say about Alaska:
All voters - photo and non-photo ID accepted
An official voter registration card, driver's license, state identification card, current and valid photo identification, birth certificate, passport, or hunting or fishing license; or an original or a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government check, or other government document; an item exhibited under this paragraph must show the name and current address of the voter. An election official may waive the identification requirement if the election official knows the identity of the voter. The identification requirement may not be waived for voters who are first-time voters who initially registered by mail or by facsimile or other electronic transmission approved by the director under AS 15.07.050, and did not provide identification as required in AS 15.07.060.

O ho ho ho: It is to barf. Republicans like Whittaker and Hammond I have respect for. But Bush is about as far from Republican values as you can get.
