That's not what photo ID is supposed to do. John K Clark is already
registered to vote, they are already convinced that John K Clark is a US
citizen and is
enough to vote and is not a convicted felon. When I go to the polls the
only question they might have is
"are you
really John K Clark?".
A photo ID issued by a State University can answer that question just as
well as a concealer carry permit
can. The only difference between the two is one gives a hint that I am
likely to vote for Trump and the other a hint that I am likely
 going to vote for Trump
​, the state legislators knew this and that's why the law is the way it is.
