Opponents of Voter ID Bill Testify Before House Committee

Opponents of a bill that would tighten requirements for voting and voter registration in Kansas testified today (WED) before a House committee. The legislation would require voters to show a photo ID at the polls. It would also require people registering to vote to prove their citizenship. Kevin Myles is president of the Kansas Conference of the NAACP. He believes the restrictions could discourage Kansans from voting.

Myles says the requirements in the law could make voter registration drives in the community nearly impossible. Supporters of the legislation say the changes are needed to prevent voter fraud.
