Voter registration, identification
VOTING – Amends existing law to revise provisions regarding voter registration and voter identification.

RS30193 / H0126

The purpose of this legislation is to clarify and create uniformity in voter registration requirements. Currently, there are inconsistencies among the various methods of registering, as well as lack of clarity concerning the type of documentation an applicant must show to prove residence in order to complete registration. To standardize the voter registration process, this legislation requires that applicants submit a completed application, show proof of identity, and show proof of residence, regardless of the manner of registration. In addition, by specifying the acceptable documentation required to prove identity and residence, this legislation prevents any uncertainty for applicants and election officials. Finally, this legislation requires the Idaho Department of Transportation ("ITD") to issue no-fee identification cards to qualifying individuals for the purpose of complying with voter registration and voting requirements.
