Miller Says He'll Propose Voter ID Law in Nevada

Posted: Updated:

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- Democratic Secretary of State Ross Miller said he'll sponsor a bill in the upcoming Legislature to establish a photo identification requirement to vote in Nevada.

Speaking to reporters Tuesday, Miller said his proposal would require photo ID of registered voters be included in polling books kept by county election officials. Workers would then check the photos on file when someone signs in to vote.

Poll workers would take photos of anyone who lacks a photo ID to be included in the records.

Miller said the move would quell complaints about voter fraud. He also said it would be less onerous on the public because voters would only have to show a photo ID once.

Miller said a similar proposal in Minnesota failed but had an estimated cost of $20 million.
