Voter ID: A Valid Photo ID Remains ID Even After Expiration

The identififying data presented on any photo ID accepted for voting purposes remains valid even after the ID expires for any licensing purpose.

The need for a vehicle operator's license to expire and require renewal doesn't apply for voting purposes. 

The burden placed on such voters as senior citizens who no longer drive to update expired ID to maintain voter eligibility far exceeds any benefit to voting registrars or anyone else with legitimate concerns over franchise integrity.

Thank you for considering these comments,
