Valid IDs should be limited ONLY to those IDs which are unexpired.

As a Notary Public in the Commonwealth of Virginia, most of my customers which are, primarily, mortgage banks, reject IDs which are expired because they consider them to be no longer valid. It is not an unduly burdensome requirement to renew a government issued ID card. Virginia allows such to be accomplished over the internet. In fact, law enforcement officers across the Commonwealth will write summons to individuals who operate a motor vehicle with an expired drivers license.

Let's not muck the system up any further than it already is. And, given how important elections are, why wouldn't you minimize the rish of fraud?
