Vote to pass a bill that requires voters to show photographic identification at the polls.

Highlights:
  • Requires voters to present one of the following valid forms of photographic identification before voting (Sec. 1):
    • Driver's license;
    • State identification card;
    • Tribal identification card;
    • United States passport;
    • United States military identification card;
