The argument against voter ID is pretty nonsensical. What is the proposition here? That there is a significant portion of the American electorate which does not have, and cannot afford, a state ID? And such a group votes in any significant number? Frankly, I'm curious how anyone who can't find $15 (Ever, since a non drivers license doesn't expire) can possibly be an informed voter and a useful participant in democracy. But lets compromise. How about a FREE voter ID you can get from the DMV? Obviously anyone who can't put $15 together (Ever) doesn't have anything to do which would interfere with an hour or two at the DMV.
