Letter: Let’s require all citizens to show ID when voting

Let’s require all citizens to show ID when voting

Those who favor minimal to no control over who might show up to vote have stated that many studies have “shown voter fraud to be so fractional as to be a non-issue.” This from a writer in this column on April 20.

The point I would make is that no one of those who espouse that philosophy have ever stated what they regard as a fractional number. In that I only have one vote, my selection might well be meaningless by any number of fraudulent votes.

It so happens my school district is quite particular as to who will be allowed to vote in board and budget elections. I must show ID. I have no problem with that requirement.
