    Insisting on a photo ID is not an unreasonable requirement. People simply cannot interact in the modern world without a photo ID.
    You are ignoring the elderly, which show up in higher numbers to vote than other age groups. They don't need jobs for the most part, they don't need ID to drink, many do not drive and many have never had to have ID. Where is the voter fraud that requires we ask for ID?

    taxigirl, your socialist profesors have been working on you. I can tell. Do some research on voter fraud and the liberal ACORN organization.

    When was the last time you needed ID to have a check deposited via electronic transfer?

    As for ACORN, there was voter registration fraud, not the actual casting of ballots.

    The ACORN link posted earlier is evidence enough...

    The number of potential voters that have no ID and cannot afford ID is miniscule.
    If the ACLU and the extreme Left wish to combat the injustice, they could easily help these last remnants of the Depression Era obtain ID.

    You had to have ID to open the account.
    If there is registration fraud, it is reasonable to expect voter fraud to accompany it.

    I don't think a poll worker would let Fred Flintstone vote.

    Minimal voter fraud or suppression from 2009 article. Now we need ID.
