Jose's Voter ID Story

Jose's Voter ID Story

Jose, who grew up in Milwaukee, has been experiencing homelessness.

His wallet was stolen with his state ID and Social Security Card in it. He met VoteRiders’ Molly McGrath at First United Methodist Church and told her he didn't know where the nearest DMV was, or how to go about getting there.

Molly drove Jose to the DMV to get his ID. The clerk asked for his SSA card, but Molly made sure Jose knew that he only needed to tell her his Social Security number in order to get a replacement ID. It can be intimidating to have government officials ask for documentation you don't have, even if they don't actually need it.
