ID Is a Necessity
In the past six months, I’ve shown ID to board a plane, buy lottery tickets, use a credit card and write a check. Isn’t voting just as important, or more so, than those things?
Requiring all registered voters to show an ID would be a burden to senior citizens and the underprivileged? Taking the time to go get the ID would cost lost wages and is the same as a poll tax?
Give me a break! How about pictures on voter registration cards for those who don’t drive? That might be one answer.
I don’t believe it is right to go through life without some form of ID. Whether the government aids the less fortunate in getting them or not, it should be required of all American citizens who want to vote, just as it is required to drive a car.
