People routinely use photo identification cards for making credit card purchases, boarding airplanes, cashing checks, filling prescriptions, transacting real estate deals, filing for Social Security, food stamps or welfare. If the foregoing reasons are important to proving one's identify, then why shouldn't voter sanctity likewise be important? In point of fact, it is difficult to comprehend how anyone living in the 21st century could miraculously escape all or one of the governmental regulations that now dictate a photo ID for some purpose. There must be all of ten individuals in Maryland who somehow escaped a need for a photo ID. If a photo ID is considered a threat to seniors and minorities, then maybe its time to repeal other mandates that compel the same people to get a photo-ID such as food stamps, prescriptions, government building access, etc.
