No picture ID! Sorry Mr. President, you can't vote here.

Article 1 of 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution

1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

According to this George W. Bush only carries a handkerchief.

No picture ID! Sorry George, if you live in the Wisconsin that the State Legislature wants, you will be denied the right to vote.

Is, to deny a citizen the right to vote because they don't have an ID, to deny liberty without due process?
