Professor Graeme Orr and Emily Howle write that voter IDs are a solution searching for a problem

Graeme Orr and Emily Howle write in the Brisbane Times (23.5.14) how the votes of tens of thousands of vulnerable people are threatened by voter ID requirements. Those most at risk are elderly and young voters, people in remote rural regions, indigenous people and the homeless.  ‘Voter ID laws are an American obsession we do not need to import. They are a solution in search of a problem, which will create new problems, especially for Queensland’s most vulnerable.’
