2016 House Bill 6066: Require voters with no ID to prove identity within 10 days

To require a person who does not have a photo identification card when voting to verify their identification with local election clerks within 10 days or the vote will not be counted. Under current law individuals without an ID must sign an affidavit of identity, and are subject to challenge if an official or another voter has good reason to believe the person is not a qualified voter. Reportedly this rarely happens though, and there is no review process for the affidavits and votes of people without identification. The bill contains an $8 million appropriation to pay for "voter education" on the change, which also has the effect of making it "referendum proof" under current Supreme Court interpretation of a state constitutional ban on referendums to repeal appropriation bills.
