Please reject any changes to the existing rules on voter identification.

Please reject any changes to the existing voter identification requirements and do not require unexpired IDs.  Many forms of ID do not have expiration dates at all, including those you can get from your local registrar.  Furthermore, whether an ID is expired or not has no bearing on whether the person is who they say they are.  Continually changing the voter ID requirements leads to unnecessary and unfair confusion.  This is unacceptable when it comes to something as important as voting.
