Example of a photo ID

SACRAMENTO, California: State Senator George Runner has filed a lawsuit against the office of the California Attorney General, alleging that the ballot title written by that office for the "Photo ID to Vote" measure that would require people to show a picture ID before they could vote is misleading.[1]

Runner said that Brown's ballot title is "way over the top."

The office of the attorney general said they think the lawsuit is "without merit."

The ballot title written by Brown's office says that the "Photo ID to Vote" proposition would place "limits" on voting and "prohibits citizens from voting" unless they produce the photo ID.[1]
