I intended to give out this kind of information (what IDs are
recognized as official here and related stuff) - I didn't do it
because of being busy with other stuff. However, only one person told
me he didn't like my elector card (I promptly showed him my driver
license and my University worker ID, which seemed enough). And there
were many of us showing this kind of IDs.

I remember, however, in Norway most locals didn't have any document
which many of the KSP attendees would recognize as an official ID, and
there was quite a bitter argument regarding their bank cards with
pictures - And there were not just one or two, there were _many_
locals showing their IDs.
