Voter ID Bill “Imminent”

Posted on April 29, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

According to the latest Quorum Report:
“With Voter ID language “imminent” House GOP caucus restates core principles.”

52 Republicans say there are four key principles they consider acceptable in Voter ID language:

1. Ensure a valid photo identification is needed to vote
2. Take effect at the next possible uniform election date
3. Be free of any registration requirements such as same day voter registration that dilutes the intent of the bill, which is ensuring fair and accurate elections.
4. Increase criminal penalties for voter fraud and registration.

The Republicans draw the line at any effort to expand participation by moving registration closer to early voting or election day.
