LETTER: Pleased with Voter ID law

To the Editor:

I am very pleased that the Voter ID law has finally come to be. I’ve been very much in favor of passing this law since it was first mentioned. Why shouldn’t it be required to show ID to vote ... we have to show ID when checking in at an airport ... when cashing a check, etc. There are too many people committing fraud by claiming to be someone they aren’t, when going to vote. I’ve heard stories of people voting in a deceased person’s name. Voting is a privilege and should not be abused. Keep it honest!
