Voter ID

Everyone who votes must show identification.  Only American citizens should be allowed to vote in any election in the United States.  People who claim that identification is impractical are simply wrong.

Nearly every teenager gets a driver license as soon as they are able.  Nearly every older American has various government identification from the military, a driver license, or social services of some kind.  In order to travel outside the country people must have a passport.  No one claims this is a burden.  In order to buy a gun, people must present identification.

If some are concerned that people may not be able to obtain identification then they should get unions, political parties, and other public groups to locate, identify and transport people to government offices so they can get identification.  The government should provide identification for free once every few years.  In order to insure the integrity of the election process it is a small price to pay, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
