Libbos have a hero complex; don't know the clinical name, but it's like when a pyromaniac fireman starts a fire, so he can show up to put it out and look like the big hero.
In principal, ensuring that voting is honest and accurate is very important. And the theory that requiring voters to have IDs sounds like a good way to do that, in principal. Except that when actually implementing that, it just prevents legal voters from voting, and does little to stop fraudulent activity. ID requirements do not actually accomplish what proponents want them to do.

Seriously, we need a whole series of 50 new laws (10th Amendment -- elections are run by states) to stop less than 1% of the vote? That's what voter fraud right now amounts to - usually a fraction of a percent. Talk about government overreach, I'd say that 50 laws that don't fix a non-problem is exactly that.
