The Iowa Senate passed a voter ID bill yesterday on a party line vote. It would require Iowa voters would need to provide government-issued identification at the polls.
House File 516 was initiated by Secretary of State Paul Pate.
Democrats called the legislation a "voter suppression bill" would keep minorities, older people and people with disabilities away from the polls.
Story County Democratic Senator David Quirmbach (cornbach) said the bill would reduce people’s right to vote.
