Judge Rewrites Voter ID Initiative

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — A state judge has rewritten a description that details the effect of a voter photo ID initiative backed by conservative activist Sharron Angle.

After two separate hearings Wednesday to consider challenges to the wording of the initiative, Carson City District Court Judge James Russell came up with his own words describing what the proposed constitutional amendment would do.

Angle says her group will refile the initiative inserting the judge’s language. She adds she’s confident she’ll be able to gather the roughly 101,000 signatures needed by June 17 to qualify for the November ballot.
