Expand? What's that?

Apologies to Mike -- I didn't expand his post on voting cards. He did indeed propose a method for avoiding charging the poor for voting. Mea culpa. Having said that...

We had some further discussion about this yesterday. I questioned why, if one already has to present ID to register to vote, and is then entered into the voting rolls and issued a voter registration card, should that person have to bring ID to the voting station? Should we do away with voter registration cards? Mike and Pat favored linking ID cards to voter rolls electronically via a bar code or magnetic strip on the back of the card. Any thoughts?
