Republicans generally support a voter ID program because they claim it will lead to less fraud, but Democrats oppose it saying that it will disenfranchise minorities and the poor, who are less likely to carry an ID.
My opinion: While I am loath to side with the Republicans on anything (besides, I don't trust them), I don't personally see the harm in having an ID program. I mean, you can't do anything these days without ID -- you can't cash a check, rent an appartment, open a checking account, get a library card, etc.
It seems to me that everyone should have an ID anyhow. So what's the harm in having one to vote? Would it really supress voter turnout and hurt the Democrats?
What do you think?
