Re: Requiring ID to vote
I have no problem with requiring an ID, as long as the process of getting an ID is not burdensome - i.e., does not disenfranchise some segment of otherwise eligible voters. I don't think that it will have any perceptible impact on voter fraud, however. "Retail" voter fraud is a non-issue - it is far to difficult to get the numbers needed to affect any election. Wholesale fraud, however, is a persistent issue and it usually consists of "encouraging" people to not vote. It would be nice to see ID implementations which did not do the same thing.
