Nearly every legislative session, someone brings up photo voter IDs.
Last fall I misplaced my voter postcard. Franklin County poll workers had iPads connected to the master database in Union. They scanned my driver's license bar code, which matched name and address on their electronic roll.
This month, I had the card. They scanned the card, which brought up identical information on their screen.
I may not be used to writing my name with my index finger, but obviously there is no need for something so 20th century as a photograph.
