SB 780 - This act modifies provisions relating to identification required to vote. Under current law, any person seeking to vote in a public election must provide a certain form of identification, provided that any person lacking such identification can vote without such a form of identification through the execution of a statement under the penalty of perjury averring, among other things, that the person is who they say they are. This act repeals the provision allowing persons to vote through execution of the statement under penalty of perjury. The act furthermore provides that individuals who do not have a form of photo identification may vote a provisional ballot, provided that such ballot shall not be counted unless the person provides a form of photo identification prior to the close of polls.
