Unlike you, those of us arguing against the ID law beleive that EVERYONE should be able to vote.
Even the Comatose? Even the people who don't know the difference between an absentee ballot and their great grandkids' birthday cards? Even people who remember more about why they voted for Eisenhower than they know about this election, sixty years later, because they have Alzheimer's?
No more vote-mining of nursing homes by community organizers. People should be voting of their own volition, of sound mind and body, the spectacle of some tween from Organizing for America trading a little attention for votes has got to end. This will help.

Still waiting for you to provide some proof -ANY proof- that people voting multiple times is a problem. WHY CAN'T YOU SHOW US PROOF IF IT'S SO OBVIOUS?

Anyway - fret not. The voter ID law seems not to affect absentee voting anyway. So let the fraud-fest continue in the absentee ballot racket. So the only seniors affected are the mobile individuals capable of visiting the polls freely, as well as the DOT at their discretion.
I don't think the law does nearly enough. One thing they could do is increase the registration dates for seniors ID's from four years to six years, which would also decrease the workload (and staff needs) at the DOT, and they should do more to protect seniors in nursing homes from manipulation/exploitation. Especially in Madison and Milwaukee.
