Change in Voter ID Requirements

People in this country fought and died to give all of us the right to vote.  Expiration dates on photo IDs have no bearing on whether the people using them are who they say they are; all the registrar needs to do is look at the photo and at the person presenting it to tell if they're that person.  If someone has a valid picture ID, he/she should be allowed to vote . . . period.  Virginia hasn't had any major problems with voter fraud and should NOT be taking away the right to vote which was granted to all citizens.  Therefore, please DON'T change the rules and try to disenfranchise our citizens.  Sounds like Sen. Obenshain is afraid his party will lose, so he's trying to prevent people from voting for the opposite side.
