It's nice that the IDs will be free and everything, but the onus is still on the voter to act.
This is the bullshit you keep promoting that I take issue with. You don't KNOW it is unnecessary because we don't have adequate cheks in place to catch it. You BELIEVE it doesn't happen very often... others believe it DOES. So, you say.. "but but but the burden is on YOU!!!" Well, no, I can PROVE that the system is OPEN to abuse and fraud can easily occur undetected. THAT ALONE is enough to warrant fixing it. Now the burden is on you to prove it isn't occurring. What? You can't? Why not? Oh.. maybe because we don't have systems in place like a voter ID.
