West Salem Administrator Not Among Fans of Voter ID

A solution in search of a problem?  That's not exactly how West Salem administrator and clerk Theresa Schnitzler would describe a proposal in Madison to mandate voters have a picture ID at the polls. To her, it's more like a problematic idea that would create even bigger problems at the polls.  Besides a possibility of disenfranchising those voters who don't have a state issued ID, Schnitzler also worries about the extra paperwork with provisional ballots, and how the process for absentee ballots will change if a picture ID is needed to vote that way.
