Stop disenfranchising voters
 

I worked as an election officer in 2012 and was very impressed at how well the process worked.  Requiring an unexpired photo ID is unnecessary and will only serve to keep legitimate people from voting.  If the reason for this is to keep people from voting it will succeed- but a democracy should be working for making it easier to vote, not making it harder.  I cannot imagine that as an election officer, I will be in a position to decide if the photo resembles a person sufficiently to allow them to vote.  This is outrageous and shameful.
