I was listening to MPR (Minnesota Public Radio) yesterday and they were talking about a movement here by some group to institute showing a picture ID to vote. I don't really know much if anything about this and was wondering what you all think of the idea. I know that some are against it because they say it disenfranchises low income and elderly voters.

I don't understand how we can have a national security computer system that works to safeguard critical government information but we don't have a system that is equally safe for our votes. Seems like our votes are as vital to our security as anything.

Why do you think showing ID disenfranchise voters? And how could a system like this be structured to help citizens/legal voters obtain picture IDs so voting can be more controlled?
