Voter ID necessary for fair elections

It is time that Democrats and Republicans cease the playground squabbling over the proposed constitutional amendment requiring Missouri voters to present a photo ID to cast a ballot. I know from experience that this opinion will trigger calls for my dismissal as an evil right wing Republican whose sole intent is the disenfranchisement of otherwise eligible Democratic voters along with a modicum of approval from the other side.
