Official Solution:

A proposed law would require people to bring photo ID to polling places when they vote to curb potential fraud.

A. places when they vote to curb potential fraud
B. places when they vote, to curb potential fraud
C. places, when they vote to curb potential fraud
D. places, when they vote, to curb potential fraud
E. places, to curb potential fraud by voting

The sentence is testing correct placement of modifiers. As the sentence is worded in the question stem, it seems as if a vote is being taken to decide whether or not to curb potential fraud. The meaning of the modifying phrase to curb potential fraud should be clarified.
1. The phrase when they vote to curb potential fraud is misleading
2. The comma placed between vote and to curb correctly separates the two ideas, making it clear that photo ID is the item intended to curb potential fraud.
3. The comma is incorrectly inserted after places and does not sufficiently clarify which part of the sentence to curb potential fraud is intended to modify.
4. The commas setting off the phrase when they vote are unnecessary and do not help clarify the meaning of the sentence.
5. The comma in this phrase is incorrectly placed, and gives inadequate sense to the sentence.
