OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The state Senate has voted to require Oklahomans to present identification at the polls.
The bill requires a photo ID issued by the government or Indian tribe, but allows county voter identification cards to be used as well.
Sen. John Ford, a Bartlesville Republican, says it is not an onerous requirement because people need identification for such things as writing a check or boarding a plane.
Democrats say the bill will cause problems for some elderly and disadvantaged Oklahomans who do not have a driver's license or other photo ID.
stateSenate Bill 4 will be considered next in the state House.
