Otherwise, if you can't obtain something as simple as a photo id, I have no sympathy for you - you obviously don't have it together well enough to be able to vote.
The elderly and disabled are the only possible class of people at risk for disenfranchisement. There's a case to be made whether those with diminished mental capacity - those with Alzheimer's for example - should be allowed to vote, but let's set that aside. If an elderly person under care decides to vote, their family, caregiver, or care facility should make sure ahead of time they have proper credentials and transportation to and from the polling place. It's not that hard.
The opposition to SQ 746 isn't about disenfranchising voters, it's about disenfranchising Democratic voters, specifically the dysfunctional and the ineligible. Read into that what you want."
