Voter ID in Mexico

The Pueblo Cheiftain editorializes on voter ID.
But we don’t think such laws are aimed at potential Democratic votes — Latino or otherwise — but rather at attempts to subvert the election process. And it would be good for those critics to look southward.

In Mexico, to cast a ballot, the voter — all of the voters — must prove citizenship and eligibility by presenting the federally issued Mexican voter ID card, which not only bears the photo of the registered voter, but a fingerprint, a barcode and a holographic image to deter tampering.

After having voted, the voter’s finger is dipped in ink to prevent repeat voting.
