Proof of citizenship at time of registration is where it has to start. Once someone is registered, they can get a photo ID whether they are a citizen or not. If Hector Gonzolez or Paddy McMurphy are here illegally and register to vote by mail and it's accepted, they can get a photo ID for voting purposes and successfully cast their votes in person or by absentee ballot. Photo ID doesn't stop them if they are registered.

I've never understood the cry for photo ID for voting purposes. In person voting fraud is miniscule and photo ID doesn't prevent anything since they are "legally" registered. The 13 States that allow same day registration/voting require ID and proof of residency.

Proof of citizenship at time of registration is the answer if you're concerned about non-citizens voting.
