Voter ID Initiative Review

A proposed constitutional amendment pushed by Sharron Angle to require photo identification to vote comes under scrutiny as a judge hears challenges to the initiative. Carson City District Judge James Russell will hold two hearings on separate lawsuits challenging to the proposed Voter ID Initiative.

The measure supported by Angle’s political action committee, Our Vote Nevada, would require voters to have photo identification to cast a ballot. It also would require election officials to issue free cards to anyone who does not have valid photo identification issued by a government entity.

One lawsuit challenging the initiative was filed on behalf of two voters by lawyers with ties to the Democratic Party. The other was filed by the American Civil Liberties Union.
