Governor Henry vetoed the bill last week and released a statement saying, "A small but still important minority of registered voters, many of whom are senior citizens or the working poor, do not have easy access to an official form of identification and, therefore, could be discouraged from participating in the electoral process by the restrictions contained in Senate Bill 4."
Supporters of voter ID, maintaining a desire to protect the "integrity" of democracy, quickly followed Henry's veto by passing Senate Bill 692, which sends the question to a vote of the people in 2010. So, how do you plan to vote? Let us know in the poll below and leave your thoughts in the comments section.
