ID to vote

Any "once valid" ID should still be acceptable for voting. The logic is still valid that the ID identifies the person,

even if the expiration date has been exceeded. If the ID is a drivers license or a college ID, for example, the person is still THAT person, they just may no longer drive or attend that college, which is NOT relevant to showing the ID for voting.

any once valid, legitimate ID (drivers license, college ID, passport, etc.) that performs the intended purpose to show the person is who he or she says he/she is, should be acceptable - it's logical. Please do not make expired IDs invalid for voting!
