Requiring IDs deters dead people from voting

I'm afraid Lawrence Lundgren doesn't understand why residents are asked to present voter IDs when voting. It's not a Republican or Democratic thing; it's about preventing voter fraud.

Show a driver's license, or if you don't have one, go to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles to obtain a permanent ID with a photo. What's the big deal?

Each registered voter is allowed one vote -- only one. Far too many deceased people seem to come back to life and vote during an election. Voter IDs will help stop this.

Abraham Lincoln would be appalled by many of the illegal practices happening today at the poles. The government should get after welfare fraud. That would really open a can or worms!
