Please Do Not Change the Valid ID Rule - Allowed Expired ID as Valid Voter ID

Please do not change the valid ID rule and allow the current rule to remain in place where an expired ID is a valid ID for voting.

This has the consequent whether intended or not of further restricting voter's rights and may have a significant impact on seniors, our men and women in military uniform and college students.  Again, we should expect the Board of Elections to look for ways to encourage our citizens to become registered voters, vote, and help strengthen this important element of a healthy democracy.
