State Representative Guy Vander Linden says that he is pleased the House was able to pass a Voter ID bill through committee during funnel week. Vander Linden says that he believes voter fraud is an issue in Iowa, and this bill would take steps to curb that fraud. Opponents of voter ID laws say that it would hurt certain groups, like the young and elderly, who may not have a photo ID. Vander Linden says that those who don’t have an ID would be provided one free of charge.
