I have no problem with Hucks's and Francis's idea that ID"s be free and easily available, they are already free, availability could be improved which would be a reasonable angle to work on. No ID at all? That ship has sailed, even if no voter fraud has ever occurred in Wisconsin, how would we know, how do we know it won't occur in the future and why leave that door open? Both Republicans and Democrats seem to think the accusation of voter fraud is aimed at the Dems and voter suppression at the Repubs but that could change.
That said, your ship is sinking and you are rearranging the deck furniture.
