Re: Requiring ID to vote
I think it's a fine idea... as long as the legislation which requires it, is passed at least 4 years before the requirement is instituted, in order to assure that everyone who wants to vote, and doesn't have a passport, licence, or other ID, can get one.
Passing such a law a few months in advance of an election is purely designed to help suppress the poor and disadvantaged vote; it's a political ploy.
