Three things I'd like to add as food for thought in anticipation of the really fun comment conversation that I'm sure will arise:

  • First, we have fact-checked this video. 


  • Second, in spite of the many efforts to create tighter, fraud-proof voting regulations, over the years I have found no convincing evidence that voter fraud is, well, real. 
  • Third, requiring IDs to vote makes it harder for citizens to exercise their constitutional right to vote — it is an obstacle to democracy. Insurmountable? No. But an obstacle all the same.
