Eligible voters need ID

Daily Item

---- — The Governor and Republican legislators keep insisting that the new voter ID law is not discriminatory, even though poor people, senior citizens, the disabled, and inner city residents disproportionately lack the appropriate ID.

The Republicans could prove their critics wrong by pledging to implement the law only after they can certify that every eligible voter has an appropriate photo ID. Better yet, the Commonwealth Court should require it.
