Amid national concerns from the president that voter fraud is rampant, a Reno assemblywoman introduced a bill requiring voter identification at the polls. Assemblywoman Lisa Krasner, R-Reno, introduced Assembly Bill 164 on Monday that would mandate voters show identification when voting. The bill also contains a provision the Department of Motor Vehicles to provide voter identification cards at no cost if a person can’t afford it. … Multiple studies show that voter fraud is not a nationwide problem. Republican Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske has put out multiple press releases and testified in front of the Legislature that it did not occur in Nevada.
“There is no evidence of voters illegally casting ballots at the most recent election in Nevada,” Cegavske said in the release. “The Secretary of State’s office is aware of attempted fraud related to voter registration in Nevada; however, with the help of local election officials, we were able to investigate and make one arrest.”
Democrats nationwide have criticized voter identification laws, which they say target minorities, the poor and the elderly, who are less likely to have state issued identification.
