INDICE DE GALERIAS
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Iowa Secretary of State's Office will rewrite its new voter registration form after complaints that it could confuse people and prompt them not to register.
The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/15c7uk1 ) secretary of state legal counsel Charlie Smithson said Tuesday his office agreed with concerns raised by the American Civil Liberties Union of Iowa.
The ACLU had argued the new form gave the impression registrants must provide a driver's license or identification card number and their Social Security card in order to register. State law actually requires a Social Security number only if registrants don't have a state-issued identification.
Smithson says the Voter Registration Commission will rescind rules enacting the new form, which was set to become an official state document on Aug. 1.
