Once you are registered to vote in your district...you are good. All you do is mail in a card. Then you go up to the polls and tell them your name and address. It's not really hard to do voter fraud. Voter fraud isn't such a widespread thing that the government needs to spend billions fixing. All they have to do is require state or federal id. Nobody is going to go fake an id to vote so it's rather simple. If you can't afford id then have a small program for assistance. The End.
