Voter ID is important to have in place in the general election because close elections do happen and when close elections happen, the American public should have confidence in the result. Every voter wants to know their vote counts and is not cancelled out by someone who is not eligible to vote… especially in a close race. Voter ID is an important tool in that process. It’s the president of the United States we’re voting for. Shouldn’t we have some integrity in that process and confidence in the result?
