This constitutional amendment would require verification of identity prior to voting. This could cause an unnecessary barrier for impoverished people, people of color, and people with disabilities, who are more likely to lack a state ID. This amendment would bar them from exercising their right to vote and cause unnecessary barriers for participating in political process.
