    So what do you think -- should voters be required to present a valid ID before they can vote?

    Or does such a thing disenfranchise citizens who are otherwise qualified to vote, placing too much of a burden on voters?

    I don't think they should have to present ID to vote.

    Perhaps they should present ID to approach voting locations, however....just enough to validate citizenship but not to be run or anything...though I don't know what that would be.

    Sheesh, we've come to an age when you have to carry a certified birth certificate or passport on your person at all times.

    To vote one must be registered, there is no reason a law can ot be enacted to VERIFY identity of those voting. Without it the law to register is useless.

    Anyone else?

    Does requiring an ID to vote create an undue burden on the right to vote?
