Requiring a photo id to vote: civil right infringement or common sense?

Is requiring a photo id to vote a civil rights infringement that prevents minorities and the poor from voting, or is it a common sense measure that helps prevent voter fraud?  John Fund from the American Spectator has written extensively on the issue, and was a guest on Laura Ingraham’s radio show today (weekdays Noon–3pm, Flint’s Newstalk 1470, WFNT).  As Mr. Fund pointed out, Justice John Paul Stevens, writing for a 9 – 0 Supreme Court majority, concluded that the latter is the case.

I was reminded of a video clip Brenda sent me a couple of weeks ago.  It was a PBS debate, so it was very nice and civil.  Still, the poor woman stuck arguing that requiring a photo id was much too burdensome looked a little uncomfortable, especially as the other participant calmly eviscerated this nonsense.

Have there ever been any electoral shenanigans here in Genesee County?
