Also worth noting that Spanish driving license IDs are on that group. They
are just (pink) cardboard with your name written in with a typewriter and
your picture *stapled* to it. I believe that has changed now (last year?) and
driving licenses now look more "official" (plastic cards)

I have always wondered why they are useful in Spain for ID purposes (even for
voting in general ellections) since it's a boy's game to unstaple somebody's
picture from his driving license and go vote with his ID and your picture in
it [0]. Go figure.



[0] As long as he doesn't go and vote too, since the people in the voting table
would notice that he has voted twice and probably would have to reject the
whole voting box of that table (as they would be unable to find and remove
the previous voters' vote).
