Co-authored by Senate Majority Whip Brandt Hershman, and signed into law in 2005 by Gov. Mitch Daniels, SB 483 requires a precinct election officer to ask a voter to provide proof of identification before the voter is permitted to vote; provides that a proof of identification is a document issued by the United States or the state of Indiana that shows: (1) the name of the individual to whom the document was issued; and (2) a photograph of that individual.
