3. Ask the legislators wanting to enact this
how many cases of voter fraud have been proven. This is a non-issue.

The number of people who will be stopped from voting is substantial, at least from the laws I have seen written but luckily not passed. To get the ID, you would have to prove you lived at the residence that you are claiming. Proof would be easy from what they said. A utility bill, rent receipt, etc. Now imagine the number of elderly who are living in nursing homes, or with their adult children. No bills are in their names. No proof. No vote.

Tell your legislators who are so interested in this to deal with JOBS and THE ECONOMY and stop wasting time.
