Expired driver's licenses should still be valid for voter ID purposes

Making expired IDs invalid for the purposes of voting makes no sense as the new free Voter ID that can be obtained at the Voter Registration Office does not have an expiration date.  If this proposal is accepted, it will require more people to have to get one of the new Voter IDs, with nothing gained for the effort, and it will slow down the voting process as each poll worker will have to review the offered ID to see if it has an expiration date. Please allow photo IDs to remain valid for voting purposes without reference to that ID's expiration date.
