On Voting Rights

Fritsch does not oppose asking voters to present a photo ID at the polls, and does not think that it should be a difficult process to obtain one or used to intimidate people from going to the polls. She also doesn't agree with efforts to shorten early voting periods and other policies that make it more difficult for people to vote. "Early voting is very important for getting out the vote and encouraging people to vote easily and conveniently," Fritsch said.
