Re: two forms of non-photo ID...?

"their whole presence is in their husband's name. Why would we deny them the vote?"

We *should not*, of course. However, it seems obvious to me that for many women who fall into that category this would effectively give their husbands two votes. I don't know how to square that circle. Perhaps if candidates tried to address the issues that the majority of people face it might help.
