Legislature Overrides Governor Veto on Voter ID Law

The Kentucky General Assembly voted this week to override a veto of legislation that will impose stricter voter identification requirements across the state, starting with the general election in November.

The measure, known as Senate Bill 2, will require voters to present photographic identification at the polls.

Another provision of SB 2 will provide a free state-issued ID card for individuals who are at least 18 and do not have a valid driver’s license. It currently costs $30 for that ID.
