I insist that a "VALID" ID be required in order to vote in Virginia, as noted below:

The word 'VALID' to me means just that, current. Not expired. A VALID Photo ID proves each voter is who s/he claims to be and is currently living in Virginia.

You cannot re-enter the USA on an expired American passport, or drive a car on an expired driver's license. You are not allowed to practice medicine, or law, or sell liquor if your license is expired. Why would you be allowed to vote in Virginia on an expired Photo ID that does not even prove you live here?

Please ensure a VALID ID is required.
