So, we have an issue. People in this country want to insure the purity of the voting process. The Courts, on the other hand, want to insure the integrity of the registration system so it doesn't exclude anyone, accidentally or on purpose. Apparently they've struck down Texas' attempt to stop people not eligible to vote via a voter photo ID law, the issue being the added distress it'll apply to economically depressed voters. It seems the courts feel that it's an unprecedented burden to ask someone to produce identification. I know that 99% understand this is absolutely absurd, but the courts have spoken! Not to worry I have though my way through a solution.
Install and equip each and every polling place with a photo ID facility and provide this service at no charge to each and every voter during the voting process. If you cannot produce valid proof you are who you say you are, a mandatory fingerprinting on the spot is required. You must also present a piece of mail addressed to you at your current address. This way with a picture, an address, and a finger print officials can locate and prosecute anyone committing voter fraud. Then you can vote on a provisional ballot. We must seek out and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law anyone who attempts to defraud this system, so the penalties must outweigh the risk. Anyone voting on a absentee ballot will be provided a home finger print kit, mandating the mail in ballot only be accepted with the voter's fingerprint clearly imbedded on the ballot.
This process not only allows every individual to vote and be counted, but gives law enforcement officials a complete profile on potential abuse of the system. No one is compromised but the criminal. While this might seem costly and time consuming, it virtually eliminates fraud. It also encourages voters to simply produce picture ID, and allows to register new voters on the spot! You can register and vote on that very same day you decide to participate in the process. It's a win/win proposal. I'm certain the courts will see this as a strike for voter freedom and as a protector of the sanctity of the right to vote that it is!
