A controversial bill that would require Nebraska voters to show a government-issued photo ID before casting their ballots could come before the Legislature as early as Friday.
More than 70 people representing some 20 organizations showed their opposition to Legislative Bill 239 on Tuesday, when the bill was originally slated for debate.
Lawmakers have spent more time on other bills this week, pushing the photo ID bill to Friday.
Adam Morfeld is the executive director of Nebraskans for Civic Reform. He says the voter ID requirement is unnecessary and costly he says it also hurts seniors, youth, low income residents and the disabled.
Supporters of the bill say it's needed to better identify and fight voter fraud in Nebraska.
