Yes, they should verify identities. It protects my vote and prevents fraud.

the system is not broken. voter fraud is not a real problem. No federal election results have been altered due to voter fraud.
this is a non-issue brought up by Conservatives to avoid issues of real significance, while exciting their anti-illegal immigrant base.
Last November, the legislature in Mississippi passed new restrictions on voting where you must present a certain ID. Yesterday, Republicans in Mississippi went to the polls in the first statewide election since the law was passed.
97% of those voting yesterday were white. Nobody had to present photo ID because they will not start the law until later in the year when Democrats also come out to the polls.
Why do you think they did this?
watch and learn

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
