What's so different about Election Day?

In the recent primary election, I voted early. To do so, I had to show a valid I.D., recite my address and sign my voter identification paper. How does requiring me to show my I.D. become a racist plot/voter suppression on Election Day when it was perfectly fine the weeks before Election Day?

The claims of the president, attorney general and other liberals that to require an I.D. to vote is racist or an act of voter suppression are unfounded. My vote should not be disenfranchised by someone who is not properly registered to vote nor who is voting multiple times. Our right to vote is more important than writing a check at a grocery store, buying a pack of cigarettes or a multitude of other things that do require a valid I.D.

The government, both state and federal, should ensure that our elections are honest and fair. The only way to ensure that a person voting is that person is to require a valid I.D.

Again, if an I.D. is required to early vote, how does requesting that same I.D. on Election Day become a racist plot or voter suppression? I've asked this same question to several elected officials without receiving any answer.
