5. Several of these laws provide for free ID. The problem is what they require...

as the documentation to get that 'free ID' can be limited and difficult to acquire, especially for older/poorer voters. (That's one of the things that the judges in the recent decisions have also noted.) For example, a small variation in the spelling of a name from what a person uses currently, to what a 70 year old birth record might say, would disqualify someone from getting a birth certificate copy and thus the free ID in some states.
