Remember Voter ID? It's still marching along to apparently certain passage. The conference committee version of Senate Bill 14, which would require photo ID at the ballot box – and which might be the most stringent such law in the nation – was approved by the Senate Monday on a strict party-line vote. Republicans want the law to deter voter impersonation; Democrats say it's really an attempt to suppress the vote among minorities, women, and the elderly – groups they say are less likely to have such ID ... and more likely to vote Democrat.
