sections been a bit dead lately, figured i'd post this and see if it invigorates some discussion
by age 18 (minimum voting age), i think it is a reasonable expectation to think that everyone will have an id. the state has taken every possible angle to make this plan feasible. i support showing an id to vote.
Indiana provides IDs free of charge to people without driver's licenses. It also allows voters who lack photo ID's to cast a provisional ballot and then show up within 10 days at their county courthouse to produce identification or otherwise attest to their identity.
if someone isn't willing to go get a free id, i don't think they can complain about being left out of the voting process. i think all states should adopt this policy. (although i'm not going to hold my breath on my home state of massachusetts)
