Yes, I believe that it is constitutional for photo identification to be required when voting, because it is a small way to make sure that dead people, or people who do not live in the district, do not vote. A person who is poor can go to any government office and they will receive an operator's license or ID card for free.
Voting is a sacred right that must be upheld to the highest standards in order to preserve the honor and honesty of that right. Photo identification is required for many things in life, from banking, to paying for goods, to buying alcohol. The constitutionality of these everyday practices is not questioned but accepted as a form of protection for the consumers and merchants. Voter fraud is a serious offense that can destroy the integrity of one of our greatest rights. Requiring photo identification would help keep that in check and protect us as a nation, thereby protecting our constitution.
Yes, when you are going to vote they need to make sure that you are a citizen of the US and that you are who you say you are. We have the free right to vote, but people who do not do not deserve to sneak in and get to.
Instances of fraud within US elections at all levels, from federal to state and below are relatively so minor to have no justification for what is blatant voter suppression, targeting minorities and the poor for whom getting said Photo ID is not as simply as people make it out to be, all because they refuse to vote for politicians will harmful policies that directly affect them
The fourteenth amendment prohibits the federal and state governments from denying a citizen the right to vote based on that citizen's "race, color, or previous condition of servitude". Studies have time and time again shown that ID laws disproportionately affect minority and older citizens. Identification is verified during the voter registration process. Requiring ID at the polls creates hurdles for voters who for any number of reasons do not have the specific ID states may require. The ID laws may also violate the twenty fourth amendment as well as there is usually a fee to obtain an ID and amounts to a poll tax, affecting the poor more than anyone else.
It is not constitutional for a photograph identification to be required when voting. The Constitution grants everyone the right to vote, even if they do not have a photo identification card. The recent measure to demand photo identification is clearly a racist attempt to prevent poor African-Americans from being able to vote.
