I prefer a National ID, instead of state by state drivers liscenses - hardened, and with biometrics (essentially tamper proof)..but that's another thread.
Yes - require ID but 1. free to the indigent 2. free transporation to get it for those whom need it.
Voting is a right, not a privledge like driving, so any impediments must be removed if an ID is a requirement of voting

"Is requiring voter photo ID a type of disenfranchisement?"
It most certainly is. There is no reason on earth why a person who has voted all their lives being denied doing their civic duty. The argument of free photo ID's doesn't fly because it take time and money to get to the place where they are issued. Besides it very difficult for invalids and the elderly to travel.
In my state of Oregon we have vote by mail and all that is required is your signature on the envelope that contains your ballot. Each and every ballot is checked against the signature on the registration.
And it's your argument against photo IDs that doesn't comport with the reality that people already have them for the multitude of other reasons they need them, including and especially the "invalids and the elderly".
