I agree with the left on this instance, but not in principle
I am a Conservative and consider the American Left to be poisonous (I was on the Left, and it was poison.)
That said, having been poor where twenty bucks was a week’s groceries (or nowadays, half a tank of gas) , I agree that forcing people to pop twenty for voter id is wrong.
That said, the idea of validating who you are on election day is crucial; one man–one vote.
Take for example the hanging chads in Al Gore’s Rubicon; It is easy to create a hanging chad when you take ONE vote puncher and pad it with 10 voting card–it is harder when you match one voting card with one voter.
