Following on Helen's post. A recent sample of about 1700 registered voters found 31 who voted in both FL and NY in the last Presidential election. Doesn't sound like much, huh? But the duplicate voting was about 1.7%. That could make the difference in a Presidential election ... especially in a swing state like FL.
I'd rather have the govt spend money on protecting the integrity of the voting process than saving the habitat of white squirrels.
In PA the photo IDs are free. Many things are accepted: employer IDs, student IDs, passports, drivers' licenses. I've seen nursing homes bring vans to the pollls with their residents ... they could easily get those people photo IDs. All driver license centers offer the service as well. Here in PA most of those centers are located in shopping malls for convenience.
And, again, we are only talking about those people who don't already have photo IDs. The majority of likely voters already do have a photo ID of some sort.
