Lawmakers mull limiting absentee voting

As the Idaho Vote By Mail initiative drive ends without qualifying for the ballot, Idaho House GOP leaders are mulling further limiting, rather than expanding, absentee voting in the state. House Majority Leader Mike Moyle, R-Star, said, “It’s not just me - there are several legislators talking about trying to do something along that line.” Moyle, author of the new law that requires Idaho voters to show photo I.D. at the polls, said he’s concerned that federal laws may also require I.D. for absentee voting. “We may be breaking a law now,” he said.

“It’s been brought up by some other legislators, we talked about it a little bit, but nothing’s been decided yet,” Moyle said. “I’ve got to figure out what’s legal and what’s not.” You can read my full story here at spokesman.com.
