Virginia Voter Photo ID Bill Dead for the Year

Posted:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Legislation to require Virginia voters to provide photo identification at polling places is dead for the year.

A House subcommittee on Tuesday incorporated Republican Del. Rob Bell's bill into another bill that tightens the acceptable forms of ID voters must present to vote a regular ballot.

Bell's bill became part of Del. Mark Cole's bill to eliminate utility bills, current paycheck stubs or government checks bearing a home address as valid voter identification.

Under Bell's bill, people who lack photo identification such as a driver's license would be eligible for ID cards at no charge from the Department of Motor Vehicles.
