Oklahoma voters approve showing ID at polls

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma voters have approved a measure that would require voters to present voter identification at the polls.

Those without identification would be able to sign a sworn statement and cast a provisional ballot.

The measure drew opposition from the League of Women Voters of Oklahoma, among other groups, who wrote that the amendment raises "a new barrier" for all Oklahomans, especially the elderly, poor and minorities.
