Voting Mania

Oh, it's a madhouse out there all right.

I never realized it, since I've never before voted in Illinois (and pity the fact, for my vote is far less valuable here than elsewhere), but there's no requirement here for showing identification documents of any sort when voting. I was ready to produce valid ID at the polls, but none were actually needed!

The sense in this is what, exactly? How does this help ensure accurate voting?

And I thought things were bad in Wisconsin (where you could register and vote on the same day of an election) - voting fraud doesn't seem like it would be hard to commit thereabouts.
