You said "My favorite story from the unintended consequences file came in the Kansas primary when a judge known by every precinct worker was turned away because he didn't have photo ID."

Which is odd, because this is not disenfranchisement. This is a case of a judge (who presumably knew the law and tried to circumvent it), being told to go get his driver's license. This is not a case of disenfranchisement, it is a case of a voter getting instruction by a poll worker.

I do not think I have *ever* gone to the polls without a state issued ID. The reason is that I drive there and when I drive, I bring my driver's license.
