My father, age 93. My father-in-law, age 89. Neither has a valid "government approved" ID. Both cannot use public transportation, nor can they drive. So unless you are bringing the "government" to them, they are, by definition, disenfranchised.

What kind of logic is this? I swear you liberals all roll the same way: identify extreme outliers and then argue that 99.999995% of the population should conform to the special cases.

In most voter ID laws being enacted, the IDs are available for free. BTW. How are they voting if they're both unable to travel? Are they absentee? Are they in jail? Are you posting from prison and can't help out? They're not being taken care of? What?

Or how about this. We'll stipulate that rest homes could have picture ID services if you stipulate to presenting photo IDs to vote.
