But, The Post went further

From my earlier post: If, as the commission on federal election reform suggested, those cards were available to voters in need of identification for free, how would that harm those who don't currently have a license?

You can't cite the fee as a problem when I have stipulated that there should be an option for a free ID. If states object to a completely free system, then maybe they could set up a two-tier system with those below a certain income qualifying for a fee waiver--similar to the LSAT, SAT, or even admissions. (California and Indiana already have similar systems in place--Indiana specifically for voting.) My point is that being required to show some documentation that established your right to vote is not too much to ask.
