N.H. House And Senate Working Out Voter ID Differences

House and Senate lawmakers are working to reconcile their differences when it comes to requiring voters to show photo identification before casting ballots.The House wants to require photo IDs and have election workers take pictures of people if they don't have one. The Senate version of the bill would let people sign affidavits without being photographed, but senators said Tuesday they'd be willing to consider the picture-taking provision if it was delayed until next year.

House lawmakers also indicated they might consider allowing student IDs to be used, as the Senate wants, though they asked for language specifying that the cards must be issued by accredited schools.

The negotiating team meets again Wednesday.
