1 About 90% of adults in America have photo id. We ask ourselves who are the people without ID, how many of them vote.
2 Elderly are not one of the groups that the left claims dont have photo ID.
The idea that you need evidence of fraud to prevent an obvious chance for fraud isnt really sound. If you have a house with no doors on it the fact that no one has robbed you isnt a good reason to not put doors on.
The current system is ripe for fraud. Anyone can register and vote with no proof of their existence. A thousand people could all register and vote 20 times and no one would really know.
And photo id is the lowest possible standard of verification.
And it is free in almost all cases. Sometimes it is a little hard, but it is easier than voting.
So we get to the question why not?
