DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
Election day voter registration; voter identification. Permits a voter to register at the polls by completing a voter registration form and an affirmation that the person has not voted elsewhere in the election and by providing proof of identification. Requires that voter registration forms executed at the polls be processed in the same manner as other registrations. Limits to: (1) voters who register on election day; and (2) voters required to provide proof of identification under federal law; the requirement that a voter provide proof of identification. (Under federal law, a voter who has registered by mail for the first time is required to provide proof of identification.) Changes the definition of "proof of identification" to reflect the standards set by federal law. Repeals statutes relating to the requirement that all voters present proof of identification.
