I should have been more specific in my previous letter about photo identifications. There is very little evidence of the existence of the type of voter fraud that could be prevented by the use of photo ID.
The examples cited by the letter, "Plenty of evidence of voting fraud cases," (June 21), concern fraud by election officials, and by certain politicians, I suspect of Republican as well as Democrat persuasion.
The Brennan Center for Justice published an "Analysis of Alleged Fraud in Briefs supporting Crawford respondents" available online.
The briefs contain more than 250 citations to reports of election problems, but almost none would have been prevented by the Indiana law requiring photo ID.
Voting is a constitutional right. Laws making it unnecessarily difficult to exercise this right amount to voter suppression. This is as wrong as fraud committed by election officials. Just my opinion.
