It's not only not perfect it's actually detrimental to one group that tend to vote one way and as such is purely a political tool, because there's no evidence at all of meaningful voter fraud occurring where people impersonate other voters.
So you're trying to solve a non-problem by creating a very real problem.
And the solution won't actually stop the fraud in question, as fake IDs are cheap and plentiful in the US.

Holder is currently suing a State for passing a voter ID law. That's why it's relevant. He's actively trying to negate all the States who have those laws.
It has not much to do with common sense, it's an attempt to do an end run around a recent SCOTUS decision that made such laws Constitutional and Legal. Again it's this Administration attempting to negate another branch of government. They don't like the Constitution and they are attempting to knock holes in it to give the Executive Branch more power and take power from the other co-equal Branches.
Obama actually said right in his last State of the Union that he was going to ask Congress to expand his powers. Scary dudes these guys. To get the system they want, they must get rid of the Constitution first. The President was never meant to have the power they have now. It eliminates the checks and balances that keep us from ending up with a de facto Dictator in the White House.

Yah and I bet you think ACORN didn't manufacture votes for Obama. Why do you think the Democrats don't want voter ID? Let me guess, you have no clue because you don't understand why illegals shouldn't be allowed to vote.
MANCHESTER, New Hampshire (CNN) -- Allen Raymond is living proof that political dirty tricksters do exist.
The former Republican political operative went to federal prison after he pleaded guilty to charges of phone harassment. He jammed the phone lines of New Hampshire's Democratic Party on Election Day six years ago. "The concept was to disrupt lines of communication. That's a fancy way of saying, 'make it so the phones didn't work,' " Raymond said recently. "No calls going out. No calls going in." We're not going to give away exactly how Raymond did it. According to federal prosecutors, two top Republican Party officials tapped Raymond's Virginia-based telemarketing firm for the operation. Raymond then contracted out the job to a private phone bank in Idaho.
