(TheRedWire.com) – In Democratic-led states, officials are requiring people to show proof of identification before getting one of the three approved vaccinations. It’s designed to ensure that people are who they say they are when showing up to get a prized vaccination. It’s perfectly reasonable. Except, one has to wonder: Why is identification required to get a shot, but it’s not to vote? Could one argue that forcing people to provide identification is a form of vaccination suppression by Democrats?

States require anyone wanting a vaccination to show identification, such as a driver’s license, passport, or other legal proof of birth date and residency. What if someone doesn’t have an ID? Isn’t that the argument for allowing people to vote without proof of residency and citizenship?
If it seems just a little hypocritical, it’s because it is. Requiring identification to vote ought to be the same standard as writing a check, or heaven forbid, getting a shot.
