An Alabama House committee has delayed action on a bill to require voters to show government-issued photo identification at the polls. The House Constitution and Elections Committee voted 7-4 Wednesday.
The bill would require voters to show a driver's license, non-driver's identification card, passport, military ID or other federal or state government-issued identification to be able to vote.
Democrats on the committee voted to delay the bill, while Republicans wanted to send it to the full House for debate.
The bill by Republican Rep. Gerald Allen of Tuscaloosa was introduced after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld an Indiana law requiring voters to show government-issued identification.
