Name matching for Hispanics is a headache?? It's the Homeland Security database - you match names with social security numbers, address, passport info, visa/green card info, death records, location records. Not very hard to do at all - I work in the industry where data mining is highly prevalent and it's not difficult at all to tune database searches to validate information. The government even has one to help businesses check status on citizenship as well for hiring (e-Verify). If the Feds don't help states with this, there's no chance states will ever be able to validate citizenship.

If the cost of a picture ID is too great, I expect that small population not to be wasting their money on drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, cell phones, jewelry, acrylic nails, or designer fashion wear (hats, shoes, sports gear wear, etc), and they do not send money overseas. Given that, how many people does it disenfranchise? Not many, I would think.
As I said above...the problem is they're doing it 90 days before the primaries, which is in violation of the law.
