That was part of the argument in favor of Indiana's Voter ID law, oral arguments on which were heard by the Court today.
I presume the argument is that it's ok to let the minority not be heard, because the vast majority can be. I understood America to be a land where citizens got a vote, not those citizens with the means to get a picture ID, or those citizens without an ID who can afford to take a day off within 10 days of the election to affirm their vote.
I understand the fear of voter fraud. But I find it wrong to deny American People a vote in a Free Country because of restrictions placed upon them by the Government. When the Government can determine who may or may not vote by passing legislation, then we cease to become a democracy or a democratic republic. I fear the Court will find differently than I, but I have difficulty swallowing the argument that it's OK to deny a right reserved for all based on their inability to obey a legislative act.
