To be up front, I support voter ID requirements. I can’t see any reason other than fear of reduced voter turnout for your side. Maybe it’s because I live in a state which requires photo ID to vote and I’ve never felt encumbered or inconvenienced in any way in the last 16 years.
Many people get involved with certain movements only after they are personally affected by something. Cancer charities for example. Parents who lose children to leukemia often get involved in leukemia charities. I have a feeling that if someone was the victim of voter fraud they would have a much different view on the issue. Am I right?
If you oppose requiring a photo ID to vote, how would you feel if you were unable to vote because someone had voted under your name? Regardless of whether voter fraud is rampant or not, what would your reaction be? Do you think your view on the issue would change given how easy it is to obtain a photo ID?
