Opposing voter photo ID in state constitution

I’m not a big fan of government spending, especially when the ends do not necessarily justify the means. For example, there is a major push in Wisconsin to adopt a constitutional amendment that would require all voters to present a photo ID when they vote. Today, the technology is pretty common. But that could change within a couple of years.

The League of Women Voters of Wisconsin explain in their press release that states that require a photo ID do not necessarily curb the problem of voter fraud. Furthermore, by requiring a photo ID at the polls, certain groups of people are less likely to vote. Although that is a cultural phenomenon, it is also a means of excluding people from a democratic process. It undermines exactly what our founding fathers fought for.

Thus, I oppose photo ID at the polls.
