Oklahoma City_The League of Women Voters has urged Gov. Brad Henry to veto a voter identification bill.
The nonpartisan organization says it would support the measure if any evidence existed of voter impersonation in Oklahoma elections. It said the bill would effectively disenfranchise thousands of Oklahoma voters, including many elderly residents who cannot easily obtain government-issued photo ID's.
Sen. John Ford of Bartlesville, who introduced the bill, says it would not disenfranchise anyone. He says anyone going to the polls without a photo ID or voter registration card can cast provisional ballots.
Henry spokesman Paul Sund says the governor shares many of the League's concerns.
