If the states mandate voter IDs, shouldn't they provide them to the voters when they register to vote?

To make things equal and fair, when a person registers to vote, the state where they reside should be mandated to give them a state ID just for their voting rights.
Update: Computer, read the question , I said if you are mandated to have a voter ID, shouldn't the states be mandated to provide you with one.
Update 2: How would it be self defeating?
Update 3: Let's just face the truth about the whole voter ID thing. The repubs know they can't win a election fair and square, so they must find a way to scam the voting system that has been in place for 2 hundred years without a problem.
