Excerpt: 

The subcommittee also voted to "pass by indefinitely" two other bills that would have made voting easier:

- HB 1462, introduced by Del. Richard Sullivan, D-Arlington, would have allowed students to present out-of-state university student IDs to vote in Virginia.

- HB 1953, sponsored by Del. Betsy Carr, D-Richmond, would have allowed voters to present a photo ID from a state-run nursing home. ...

The Elections Subcommittee approved a bill to require voters to submit a copy of their photo ID with their absentee ballot.

Iowa’s New Voter ID Proposal: Targeting Efficiency, Not Fraud?
01/17/17 |
Publication Date: 
Tuesday, January 17, 2017 - 01:30
Excerpt: 

Iowa voters would be required to show a state-issued driver’s license, a passport or military ID card when they vote, allowing poll workers to scan a bar code on that document to accurately call up each voter’s file in the state database.

Should the law be enacted, election officials would identify all currently registered voters and new registrants who do not have appropriate ID and provide them a free, permanent, driver’s license-quality voter card containing the necessary bar code. The card would not include a photo.

No currently registered voters would risk disqualification under the plan, [Secretary of State Paul] Pate said, and all new registrants without other ID would receive a free card. ...

Student leaders at Iowa’s public universities say they’re concerned adding an extra ID hoop to jump through will further discourage the youth vote...[as] the proposed change complicates what already can be a confusing process for first-time voters.
