Show ID to vote

The recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling that upheld the Texas voter ID law has been met with criticism by the left and by the NAACP, among other groups, as being racially discriminatory. Voting is a precious and important right. Why is it wrong to require people to prove they are eligible to exercise it?

We must show proof of identity for almost everything we do, from flying to banking to joining a club. And with a porous Southern border where thousands of illegal immigrants are coming into the country, voter ID is not only necessary, it makes good sense.
