Voter ID
 

This requirement could prevent senior citizens who have not renewed their licenses from voting. Many can get rides to the polls but might find it difficult to arrange a trip to the govt. office to secure a voter ID photo. I've heard that all one needs to secure a voter ID photo card is to claim to be someone and have any potentially "borrowed" identification. This law is obvioiusly designed to prevent high voter turnout.
