A Serious (cost effective) all American bi-partisan conservative/liberal Voter ID Solution:
Universal and Automatic Voter Identification and Registration for all US "citizens" of a state that files a federal tax return. The state in which a federal tax return is filed is required to mail the citizen taxpayer a registration and voter ID card or be subject to the malapportionment penalty clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.

The United States of America is founded on the principle of "No taxation without Representation."

Accordingly, any document used by the Federal or State Government for taxation assessment constitutes sufficient taxpayer identification to register and vote for that Government.

Taxpayer Voter ID Act would allow more citizens to vote
July 22, 2014_GREEN PAGES Vol.18,No. 1-Summer 2014
Taxpayer Voter ID Act pursuant to Amend. XIVSec.2 would facilitate confirm citizens voting.

If the Document is good enough to take my money it's good enough to accept my vote ( If it isn't, then refund all my taxes paid). No photo required to take my money, no photo required to take my vote.

However, conservatives are going to object, because this is a serious universal voter ID policy that expands rather then restricts all citizens voting, because the number of voters who are negatively impacted by Voter ID laws and also don't file federal income tax forms is insignificant. Many progressives will resist, especially lawyers because it will put many liberals that have a professional state in endless litigation over fungible repeated victories pursuant to the Voting Rights Act, with endless voter registration drives out of business.

i.e. There is a bi-partisan consensus of professional liberals and conservatives in suppressing meaningful even obvious solutions outside the box that may undermine their authoritative status and undermine the two party monopoly.
