Expired IDs should be acceptable voter identification

Hi.  I believe that expired drivers licenses, passports and other official ID's should be acceptable for voter identification purposes.  The expiration of a drivers license does not negate the fact that it properly identifies the person shown, which is all that is required of a voter ID.  Please don't disenfranchise older voters by implementing such a strict, unnecessary requirement.

Thank you for your consideration.
