Iowa House committee takes up voter ID bill
DES MOINES (AP) — Speakers at a legislative hearing criticized a bill backed by Secretary of State Matt Schultz that would require voters to show photo identification at polling places.
Schultz has filed identical bills in the House and Senate, and Tuesday’s House hearing was the first time this session lawmakers have taken testimony on the proposal.
Members of the Iowa League of Women Voters told lawmakers a photo ID requirement would disenfranchise voters who don’t have required documents. They also say the rules could slow vote-counting.
