Compromise: Photo-ID voter bill would take effect after fall elections
CONCORD – Negotiators reached an agreement over a voter photo-identification bill that would make the upcoming primary and general elections a transition period.
The bill requires voters to prove who they say they are, but the transition period would not require anyone to have photo identification to vote in September or November. In subsequent elections, they would.
The agreement combines the Senate and House versions of Senate Bill 289, with the more lenient Senate version serving as a one-year transition period and the more restrictive House version in place after Sept. 1, 2013.
