Means, motive and opportunity: if someone wants to commit the crime of altering an election, what's their motivation, what's the best ways to carry it out, and how could they do it?

Oh, yeah, let's first establish whether the crime happens, how it happens, and put a tape around the crime scene. We need to consider the consequences of any suggested preventative measure, and confirm whether those side-effects still conform to our higher goal of, say, insuring clean elections.

I think it would also be fair to consider whether requiring voter ID itself is a method of altering the outcomes of elections. Gosh, you don't think there's an ulterior motive here, do you?
