Do not place hurdles in the way of voters

It has been documented many times across the nation that voter fraud is rare and that the Republican enthusiasm for voter ID laws is motivated by thinly disguised efforts to disenfranchise voters without current driver's licenses and other forms of picture ID's, who tend to be poorer and minority voters who tend to vote for Democrats. It is a fundamental tenet of our democracy that every citizen has the right to vote.
