Voter ID Cards

I heard I discussion on C-Span in which Republican operatives were adding amendments to their party platform. I'm fairly sure they passed an amendment that favors requiring Photo IDs on election day. I've voted in every election that I've been eligible to vote in, but I can't guarantee that I wouldn't misplace an ID card and be unable to vote. The wealthy may have time to drive around all day, but for those of us who vote on the way home from work, it would be a real pain to have to go home after work on election day if we had forgotten our voter ID cards. People complain about voter apathy, but the Republicans seem to want to increase it.

Maybe I heard wrong...
