But are you seriously suggesting that laws requiring voters to show identification at the polls are intended to disenfranchise any significant number of legitimate voters?

Not a doubt in my mind.

And if so, are you suggesting the laws do (or would) actually achieve such disenfranchising?

It remains to be seen. 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.

It's time for some good old fashioned door-to-door canvassing and assistance in getting the necessary papers. In not too much time the answer, I hope, will be no.
