TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Elderly Floridians may need a driver
license or a state ID to vote.

That requirement is part of a sweeping elections bill approved
Thursday by a Senate panel.

The measure (SB 956) would no longer recognize retirement center
or neighborhood association photo IDs.

It also would prevent anyone from coming within 100 feet of
voters who are lined up outside of polling places.

Voters who move could not change their addresses on Election
Day. They'd have to cast provisional ballots that have stricter
rules to be counted.

Republicans say the bill is needed to crack down on voter fraud.
Democrats oppose it, and the American Civil Liberties Union
threatened to sue if it becomes law.
