Re­quir­ing proper ID is not voter su­pres­sion

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - - VOICES & OPINION -

Can we agree that banks and cor­po­ra­tions should be au­dited? I be­lieve the an­swer is yes. Keep them hon­est. Why, then, is an au­dit of the voter rolls “voter sup­pres­sion”?

If Democrats think that pro­vid­ing proper iden­ti­fi­ca­tion makes it too dif­fi­cult to vote, then they should fo­cus some of their “get out the vote” ef­fort on as­sist­ing the dis­en­fran­chised to ac­quire proper ID. It will be a help to those in­di­vid­u­als in their daily life as well. How many times in the course of a day does one need to pro­vide ID? I do of­ten.

Vot­ing is im­por­tant. It should be hon­est and it should be pro­tected from fraud. Karen O’Loughlin, Ta­ma­rac
