Lawmakers met Tuesday morning to discuss, for another year, legislation that would require voters to present a form of photo identification at their polling location. This year marked another time since 2006 that Republicans have brought up the bill for consideration. State Rep. Myron Neth, speaking in favor of the bill, said he felt voting might be too easy, opening the polls up to potential fraud.
“For me, who takes voting very, very seriously, I would do whatever it takes to get whatever kind of ballot ID. But yet, you defend a situation where you are almost saying you don’t want people to have valid ID to be able to vote,” he said to critics of the legislation.
Republicans have proposed legislation to provide photo identification for those who do not have it, a group of people that Democrats believe is made up of their supporters.
