House kills voter photo ID bill
The Wyoming House of Representatives defeated a proposed measure to require voters to present photo identification before being allowed to cast a ballot.
House Bill 192 failed on a 30-29 vote Wednesday.
Under the bill proposed by Casper Republican Chuck Gray, voters would have been required to show a “current, valid photo identification before voting.”
Proponents argued that the measure would help ensure the integrity of elections in the state by preventing voter fraud, while opponents said there isn’t a problem with voter fraud in Wyoming.
