Easily fixed by mandating the use of a US National Identity Card. No discrimination, no problems. No US National Identity Card = no vote in any election.

Fine with me as long as it's free, easy to obtain, and accepted nationwide for all identification purposes.


That is the concept behind it. Nationwide, universal, AND independently verifiable using a stored photo displayed independently of the card. A picture on the card (same as the one stored in the database) is more for being able to see who it belongs to than for actual ID purposes (such as when it is dropped or lost and you don't know to whom it belongs because you do not know or recognize the name, etc).
