Efforts to prove voter identity didn’t seem to be much of an issue in Linn County on Tuesday, but it didn’t keep voters from taking sides in the ongoing debate over voter identification laws.
Currently, Iowa voters are required to prove citizenship when they register to vote. Official photo identification is not required at the voter’s polling location, unless they are registering to vote that same day.
The debate over voter ID laws heated up in the past few months in Iowa and across the country as the election drew closer. Proponents of the laws say they prevent voter fraud, while opponents claim such a law could deter eligible voters from going to the polls.
