It might not be an election year, but it looks like the vote protection debate has been jump-started with a new proposal that would require photo identification to vote in Missouri. That makes this a pretty good time to re-post video of the event we held last year titled “Suppressing the Vote or Stopping Fraud: The Voter ID Debate,” which dealt with these vote protection issues. I have argued that voter fraud is a serious issue and that voter ID matters. It is good to see that the state is willing to grapple with this problem.
