Not on ballot

The Nevada Voter ID Initiative may appear on the November 4, 2014 ballot in Nevada as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure, upon voter approval, would require registered voters to present an identification card to an election board office prior to voting.[1]

The measure was filed by Sharron Angle, a former state assemblywoman and candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2010. Sharron Angle also filed the Nevada Healthcare Exchange Initiative, which could also be on the 2014 ballot.[2]
