Voter ID? Say ‘no’ to outdated technology
London’s Heathrow airport announced last week it will move totally to biometrics starting next year, relying on automated facial recognition instead of photo ID.
On this side of the Atlantic, TSA is looking to further implement biometrics, a program it started in 2015.
My question is, why would we want to enshrine in our state constitution a requirement to use a technology that is going to be out of date by the time any actual legislation occurs?
The voter ID amendment is not the way to address integrity of the voting process.
