In the midst of the midterm partisan rhetoric, the House tomorrow is scheduled to vote on a controversial election bill that would require voters to present a photo ID and proof of citizenship.
If enacted, the measure would go into effect for the 2008 elections.
Sponsored by Rep. Henry Hyde (R-Ill.), the legislation was cleared recently by the House Administration Committee on a party-line vote.
Hyde and other supporters argue the bill would prevent voter fraud by keeping non-citizens from voting.
While most Republicans support it, Democrats worry that the Hyde bill prevents citizens who do not have the required identification from registering their votes.
