Voter ID Ballot Measure Challenged (Nov 17, 2010)

The League of Women Voters is suing to stop enforcement of a recently approved constitutional amendment that would require Oklahoma voters to prove their identity before casting a ballot.

Seventy-four percent of voters approved the "Voter ID" ballot question two weeks ago.

The challenge was filed in Tulsa and is the third one filed against measures passed Nov. 2.

Prior to the election, the League of Women Voters complained the Voter ID measure would raise "a new barrier" for the elderly, the poor and minorities. Those without ID would be able to sign a sworn statement and cast a provisional ballot.

Challenges are also pending against ballot measures that require the use of the English language in most government business and that bar the use of international law when settling court disputes.
