In response to the Oct. 1 letter “ In majority of voter ID”: I suggest that taking a flight, going to the doctor, cashing a check are all privileges, and we comply with requirements for photo ID in order to access these desired services. Voting is a “right” of citizenship.
If the rationale for requiring photo ID is to ensure confidence in the integrity of the vote, then let’s first solve the problem of absentee balloting, the easiest means of voting early and voting often. Photo ID has no impact on this most accessible means of voter fraud.
I firmly believe that rights of citizenship must be respected. Photo ID limits the rights of citizens and turns this right into a privilege for some.
