"Voters in general want a system where ALL eligible voters are able to exercise their rights"

Yes, and 'eligible voters' are determined by knowing who is who (identification). Otherwise, you'd have 'ineligible voters' possibly voting (likely) with no controls.

In TX, you need to register to vote - the county keeps records - and if you vote, it is marked as 'voted'. You don't get to vote somewhere else, too. Just about everyone is 'registered' to vote. There are big 'registration events' months and weeks before elections.

And no, we don't let 'box collection' of ballots. Seems there's always 'spare boxes of votes' found when needed to force an election 'their way'.

We have state run designated drop off points for 'late ballots' up till midnight if you are eligible to vote by absentee ballot- and the polls stay open till dark here - and that after two weeks of early voting 7-7pm 7 days a week.

GA about the same. "No excuse' mail in ballots. For 'eligible' voters. Your term. Early voting....which many liberal states DON"T HAVE including half of new England....and other major dem bastions.
