Voter ID law not unreasonable
FOR THE EDITORS:
The scholarly attacks on voter photo ID, based on constitutional rights, puzzle me. I was taught that, foremost, voting was the "precious privilege" of an American citizen and not a "specific constitutional right."
Any person in the military service of the USA is required to carry a photo ID and we must show it to enter any military installation or any other area considered of significant importance.
I believe votes, in a sense, are also serving the country. If my belief is correct, is it unreasonable to require voters to have a voter photo ID to present when entering such a significantly important area as the voting booth every year?
This would help restore confidence in the election process by providing more honest results and greatly reducing the possibility of bogus vote counts.
