HB 1337 Polling place procedures; voter identification to be current, valid, and contain photograph.

Introduced by: Mark L. Cole | all patrons    ...    notes | add to my profiles

SUMMARY AS PASSED: (all summaries)

Elections; polling place procedures; voter identification requirements. Removes several items from the list of acceptable identification documents that a voter must present when voting at the polls on election day: a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, or paycheck that shows the name and address of the voter and a voter's social security card. The bill also requires that all forms of acceptable identification contain a photograph of the voter or the voter's name and address, which conforms to the identification requirements under the Help America Vote Act of 2002 and harmonizes the identification requirements for state and federal elections. The bill has a delayed effective date of July 1, 2014, and its provisions are contingent upon funding being included in a general appropriation act passed by the 2014 Session of the General Assembly. This bill incorporates HB 1787 and HB 1788.
