You are mixing two different arguments.
Yourself admitted that there should be some minimum safeguards in place. That is one argument and I agree with you that there should.
Next to the 2nd argument, effects of voter id vs. disenfranchising.
What suggestion do you have to ensure everyone is who they say they are and are eligible to vote other than photo id?
