No need to make voting harder...

I have not had my picture retaken in about 20yrs for my drivers liscense renewal (I've just renewed on-line and they send me a new one with the same picture, I don't even have to show my face to verify if I've changed or not). And all of the hype about supposed "voter fraud" should not be cause to make voting even harder for those that are eligible considering all reliable sources I have found indicate voter fraud is RARE. So are we going to potentially keep hundreds or even thousands of eligible voters from voting to prevent a couple of people from voting fraudulantly?  With our relatively paultry voter turnout, we should be doing all that we can to get people to the polls. Then we would get a TRUELY representative government (unless that's what the politicians and big money donors are afraid off....).
