Board of Elections, do, please, allow expired licenses to suffice for photo i.d.'s.

For us able-bodied, well-off, middle-age adults who confidently drive a car, getting a photo i.d. is not too difficult. But there are dozens of reasons why a person doesn't fit that profile. Yet, the most patriotic people are ones who go to the trouble of voting, and the act of voting cements their feeling of belonging to this great country.  Do not raise unnecessary barriers to the act of voting, please.  I've been a member of the League of Women Voters for almost 50 years, doing my best to help people vote.
