Editorial In the United States, state and local authorities are in charge of voting and the country uses more than a half dozen different voting technologies. As a result, the country can't guarantee that it accurately counts national votes in a timely fashion. This article discusses the problem and potential solutions to the U.S. voting dilemma.

If you think the ID laws are simple and straight forward then you are ignoring facts.

You want voter IDs? Then when someone registers to vote, get their finger print...everyone has them. There are cases where you lose them such as Chemotherapy or special illnesses but that is a very small number of people.

Did I just divide by zero for the voter ID people?

Everyone (well, everyone who can vote) has some resemblance of a face which can be put on the ID... (which is checked for validity against the database when required)
