Well it's harder to fake the "who you are" part but...NOT that hard.

Consider that when California started requiring insurance ID some years
back ('96 or so) a small cottage industry sprung up faking them with
Avery stock and laser printers. This still goes on all the time BTW.

Faking a utility bill on Avery card stock with a good laser isn't hard
either. And many of the allegations of widespread "grassroots fraud"
center on "community organizations" like unions and party-affiliated
get-out-the-vote drives that have the resources to do that sort of thing
on a respectable (or UNrespectable) scale.
