Comment Re:Then ID would be required (Score 1) 1089

There's already procedures in place to record that someone voted - even when voting ID's aren't required. Just tie a $200 tax credit to that and you'll see voting percentages sky-rocket with no voter ID needed unless the state already has voter ID requirements. Let the State handle the tax credit with the Federal Government reimbursing the states 100%.

IR scatters in the atmosphere fairly quickly. You don't have as much range with an IR laser as you would with an optical one or even just a microwave beam.

That said this system uses multiple types (radio and laser) because when one doesn't work well the other will work fine and visa-versa.
