Nevada's Democratic secretary of state will sponsor voter ID legislation next year, he said Tuesday. Ross Miller's voter ID program won't require photo ID; voters without it can get their picture taken at the polls. The Las Vegas Review Journal explains:
Under his proposal, the photos on residents' drivers licenses would be placed with their voter registration records and in poll books at election locations. People without any DMV-approved identification but who are registered would be required to have their picture taken by poll workers and to sign an affidavit that they are the person they represent the first time they vote after the law goes into effect.
Minnesota Democrats considered an "electronic poll book" plan similar to what Miller is proposing as a way to get address Republican desire for a photo ID requirement. That idea was scrapped; a constitutional amendment mandating photo ID was put on the ballot and defeated.
