Since turnout of registered voters (all of whom have photo IDs) rarely exceeds 60 percent, it can be calculated that 40 percent or more of all registered voters stay home on election night. This means statistically, voter fraud has about a 50-50 chance of succeeding from the pool of registered voters on the rolls who will not vote at all. To fault our legislature for responding to our complaints about the potential for fraud in this relevant and consequential issue is irresponsible. We have no other recourse to limit it — unless, of course, you belong to the Black Panther Party. As to the "discriminatory effects" of this measured attempt to secure the ballot box, I have never come across anyone of age who could not produce a state-issued photo ID to purchase alcohol. How is it that these seemingly disadvantaged people can perform their due diligence to produce an ID to buy alcohol and then say that they cannot produce the same to vote? Will it be argued that prosecuted cases for fraudulent alcohol purchases are so small that we should drop the requirement to produce a state-issued photo ID to buy it?
