Voter Identification

I object to the proposal to limit "valid" IDs for the purposes of voting to unexpired IDs. As many registrars and electoral board members have noted, as long as the voter reasonably resembles photo on the ID, the purpose of the law has been fulfilled. The photo ID is only for identification. There are other safeguards and procedures in place to deal with possible fraudulent voting.
