Consumers who want cold remedies containing pseudoepedrine must present photo IDs.
According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas and Tennessee
require voters to present strict photo IDs. Four other states - Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin - are gearing up to do so.
Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Louisiana, Michigan, New Hampshire and South Dakota also require a form of photo ID.
Given West Virginia's history of voting irregularities and corruption, Democrats should leap at the chance to help clean up the state's image.
Instead, Tennant, the state's chief elections officer, warns that photo IDs would prevent some voters from ever casting ballots, and that helping people get photo IDs would cost too much.
There's nothing wrong with requiring voters to show identification that proves they are who they say they are.
Insisting that there is makes Democrats look shifty.
