Idaho D's Unveil Voting Rights Bills

House and Senate Democrats unveiled a five-bill package of legislation this morning aimed at enhancing voting rights, from allowing online voter registration – something they said 15 states already have – to, like most other states, adopting a “Motor Voter” law requiring voter registration materials  to be provided to anyone 18 or older who does business at the Department of Motor Vehicles. “The purpose of these bills is to ensure that every Idahoan has the opportunity to vote, and to move Idaho’s election process into the 21st Century by taking advantage of technology to improve access to the ballot while protecting the integrity of the elections,” said Sen. Elliot Werk, D-Boise/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

Question: Which Idaho party do you think offers more protection to voting rights -- Democrats or Republicans?
