Finally, the editorial board of NRO gets down to brass tacks:

Mail-in ballots are inherently problematic because there is no way of knowing who actually fills them out; their use should probably be restricted to overseas military and diplomatic personnel. Asking voters to go to the polls and show a valid photo ID would put an end to many of these questions, and doing so is not too much to ask to maintain the integrity of our democracy.

It’s not too much to ask unless, you know, you can’t go to the polls that day.

The right wing in American politics does not care about voter fraud or vote fraud. It simply believes that the votes of certain Americans are inherently fraudulent by virtue of “those people” not being worthy to vote.
