Voter ID bill moved out of committee

Mar 14, 2013 -- 10:30am


- JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - A voter ID bill has advanced from a state House committee, though concerns were raised by legislators. HB3, by Reps. Bob Lynn and Wes Keller, would require voters to present a form of photo identification or two forms of non-photo identification. If two election officials know the voter, the identification requirement could be waived. Voters who do not meet any of the aforementioned requirements could still submit a question ballot and prove their identity after. Representative Doug Isaacson, who initially backed the bill, says he's now lukewarm in his support in light of the committee's discussions. The bill's next stop is the House Judiciary Committee.
