No, because voter ID laws restrict access to vote for people who can’t obtain an ID (states sometimes dictate which IDs are eligible and aren’t even if they’re both perfectly fine) and people who present fake IDs since they’re illegal. The first is less moral than the second. A background check restricts the access of people who can’t pass due to failing a test due to predictive factors indicating potential harm, some will fall through the cracks but that’s due to the mistakes they’ve made in their criminal record — meaning they’re not entirely innocent.
