Reader does not seen an issue with ID regulation


I realize I’m not a Rhodes Scholar, and have only had a little more than a high school education. However, I cannot understand why folks would be objecting to identifying one’s self before they are allowed to vote.

It seems like it should be a slam dunk decision.

The argument that some folks can’t afford to pay for a Photo ID doesn’t wash, because most states drop that requirement or pay to get you an ID. If someone is getting government assistance, I believe they must have a photo ID.

I don’t understand how the practice would be racially or in any way discriminatory.

Could someone please explain?
