"The state must issue photographic identification at no charge to an eligible voter who does not have a form of identification meeting the requirements of this section." Who pays for the documentation required to obtain this "free photographic identification"? Birth certificates, court records of name changes, divorce decrees, etc.

"Every person 18 years of age or more who has been a citizen of the United States for three months"... I see why they want a constitutional amendment - if you move here for your job, get a house, get a new driver's license, and send your kids to school, but it has not been three months since you got your citizenship papers, you can't vote. That move would NEVER get past the present constitution - once you establish residency - make here your mailing address, pay utility bills (btw the bill has to show use - an empty house utility bill does not work) and get a driver's license and are a US citizen, you are a citizen of the state and entitled to all rights. The amendment changes that.
