Voter ID Bill

The State Senate began statewide hearings on the Voter ID bill Thursday including one in Altoona.

The bill would require voters to bring a state issued photo ID with them when going to vote.

People in favor say, with it, voter fraud would be prevented, but those opposed say there are still several issues that haven't been addressed like homeless voters.

"There are so many allegations of fraud particularly in the south eastern part of the state and anything we can do to ensure integrity is worth doing.”

"I think it has too many problems and I think it's far too soon to even think about it."

The hearings are going on for the next two weeks the bill will be voted on in committee on April 5.
