A number of our fellow citizens here in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts are pushing a requirement to show an ID to vote. The United States being a Republic, there are various approaches to this issues, as this web site shows.
I don't see the problem with asking for ID to vote. I do see a problem with people getting to vote who are not registered to vote for the location where they are voting. On the other hand, I do see a problem with people who register by mail not getting to vote. How do we ensure that is not going to happen? I do like the idea of "provisional ballots".
