SC House panel meeting on voter ID

Jan 13, 2011 10:39:00 AM - thestate.com
South Carolina House Republicans are wasting no time pushing for a measure to require voters to show photo identification at the polls.

A judiciary panel is to meet on the bill Thursday afternoon. The meeting was scheduled Tuesday, but was rescheduled after icy road conditions caused the first day of session to be delayed.

The voter ID measure died last June, as House and Senate members failed to agree on a compromise.

Republicans called it an issue of voter integrity.

Democrats called it an attempt to suppress the minority vote. They pushed for a compromise that included no-excuse early voting in several locations in each county.
