Florida will require I.D. match for all would-be voters

The rule requires that a voter registration form must contain either a drivers license number or the last four digits of the voter's Social Security number and those numbers must match state or federal records. If a registration form doesn't match, the voter will not be allowed to vote. Voting rights activists say it's unfair for Florida to announce now that the law will be enforced, only weeks before the November election, when it hasn't been enforced before.
