Voter ID

Voters should have valid ID in order to vote.  Regulations need to be put into place and enforced to verify that the voter is a current resident and has the right to vote in our state.  When citizens come to vote, especially in a major election where the lines can get very long, a valid ID should be required to easily and quickly verify that the ID holder is a current resident of the state, and verify that they have the right to vote.

Updating an expired  ID is quickly done over the Internet, and the cost is very low, compared to other states.  If it important enough to you to have the right to vote, you should have valid ID.
