Voting should not have barriers in place

Voting is a constitutional right, and should be a free and open process for ALL people.  Requiring ID's when we already have State issued Voter ID's seems silly to me, but I understand wanting to verify the person is who they say they are.  That being said, an expiration date has nothing to do with verifying that the photo matches the person standing at the voting table.  Voting should be easilyy accessed and should not require a bunch of red tape.  Why have a State issued ID if it doesn't count?
