ID re­quired at the mall, but not at the polls

Baltimore Sun - - FROM PAGE ONE - Richard T. Webb, Park­ton

In­ter­est­ing that the new pol­icy at Tow­son Town Cen­ter on Fri­day and Satur­day nights is that in­di­vid­u­als un­der 18 are re­quired to have “iden­ti­fi­ca­tion” prov­ing they are old enough to be there alone and the “adult” re­quired to be with them has to be at least 21 with an ID to prove it (“Tow­son mall bars hun­dreds of ju­ve­niles on first week­end of cur­few with­out in­ci­dents,” Sept. 17).

But to vote in Mary­land elec­tions you need no iden­ti­fi­ca­tion. We trust some­one show­ing up at the polling place to de­cide who should be the next U.S. pres­i­dent but not the peo­ple show­ing up at air­ports, phar­ma­cies, fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions, re­tail stores and now shop­ping malls.
