Voter ID causes problems

The national League of Women Voters objections to the Supreme Court decision that upheld Voter ID laws appeared to be at least partially justified in Indiana yesterday when some nuns who had been voting for many years were denied ballots. According to a news story these elderly nuns no longer had drivers’ licenses and despite having voted from the same convent for many years, the poll workers informed them they would have to cast provisional ballots. Also denied a ballot was an 18-year-old California student who attends college in Indiana. She had a California driver’s license, but that is not considered acceptable ID in Indiana, so she too had to vote provisionally. Is this any way to prevent voter fraud? Over-zealous lawmakers should not be allowed to deny legitimate citizens their right to vote.
