You should encourage all who write on election issues to use the term “photo ID” as opposed to “voter ID.” The latter implies a special ID to vote, which could have restrictions for the poor and elderly.

We should be talking about “state photo ID,” which already exist in every state, for rich or poor, for the routine day-to-day conduct of business. It usually takes just two forms; one’s drivers license or a similar-looking state photo ID for those who are students, don’t drive, etc.

Never should we even consider a national photo ID, as that plays right into the hands of those groups that wish to control the entire population. The only exception at the national level should be our existing Social Security Numbers, which should also never be used or required for any other purpose than Social Security, welfare and medical insurance matters.
