It would all be easier if you actually had a national I.D. card in the US...And the video is funny to a point, but I think gratuitous cursing is not so funny anymore (and neither is talikng about infections, yuck!).

But regardless, I see the point. The iniciative does seem suspicious and unfair, mostly because I can't believe electoral fraud can be that widespread or relevant in the modern United States, right?
