Retain the current (June 10) version of the Voter ID regulation
 

Retain the current (June 10) version of the regulation.  The fact that some of the acceptable forms of ID, including the new photo ID issued by Virginia registrars' offices for voting purposes, have no expiration date, the fact that one's license or passport has a past expiration date is irrelevant for voting purposes - these are all commonsense reasons to retain the current version of the regulation.  The identity doesn't expire, only the right to legally drive, travel, and so on.  The SBE, local registrars, electoral boards and civic and other organizations have been preparing materials and educating voters about current requirements.  Changing the rules now would undermine these efforts and be unfair to voters in VA.
