Ohio to get strict photo voter ID law

Bill: HB269 (PDF)

Sponsored by Reps. Becker, Lynch, Stebelton, et al., HB269 requires voters to show photo identification for in-person voting. The bill revises Ohio law concerning the identification an elector must provide in order to cast absent voter’s ballots, to vote in person at a polling place, or to cast a provisional ballot. Acceptable forms of identification listed under HB269 include a driver’s license, passport, or a state or military ID card.
