As a Virginia voter, I am writing to support allowing voters to use an expired photo ID at the polls. Such ID's clearly fulfill the purpose of the new voting law, which is to demonstrate that the person proposing to vote is the person whose photo is on the ID. Requiring that the ID be current (unexpired) would cause a host of problems, including creating hardships on elderly citizens and those of limited means or mobility (many of whom would have to go get a new ID), creating grounds for discriminatory application of the law (because not all ID's even have expiration dates), and requiring election officers to make determinations for which they lack data or qualifications.
