Opinion Letters Poll worker comments on voter ID issue

I must respond to "Voter IDs 'fix' a problem that doesn't exist."

The "problems" cited in this opinion are easily solved.

These ladies and others like them can easily obtain a free picture ID from the drivers license office. It will look like a drivers license but will be used for identification only.

How can they get there, you ask? The same way they get to church, to the doctor, to the grocery store. Oh, why don't you offer to take them?

Yes, picture IDs do cut down on fraud. I have worked the polls for 11 years and the last two elections saw more minorities voting than before and everyone had to show a voter ID.

You need to check it out before condemning. Voter fraud is for real.
