The right to vote is a sacred trust. IDs are required to check out a library book, get a prescription, board a plane, enter a Federal building, and to register for school. Illegal voting is rampant, and voter identification is a simple, effective way to ensure that ONLY legal citizens vote. The cost is $13 for an ID card that last for 7 years or more, and some IDs are available at no cost if the customer qualifies. Over 99% of our society has a TV, and close to that own a cell phone. There is NO excuse to not have a valid ID. I will personally pay for ANY citizen who can document he/she cannot qualify for a free ID and can prove inability to pay.
