Different animal. The voter ID is not something you have to buy in order to vote, it's only to prove that you are who you say you are when you show up to vote. I'm about as strict/originalist as they come with respect to the Constitution and the 2nd Amendment, but I have no problem with asking people to show ID when they vote. Maybe it's because I don't think in the 41 years I've been a voter I have ever been allowed to vote withOUT showing ID, but I think it's only proper. I don't think I'd be very happy if I showed up at the polling place after work and they told me I had already voted in the morning.
