The candidates in the 96th Illinois House District all agree that they would oppose efforts to require a photo ID in order to vote.
All three were invited to take part in a roundtable discussion in Springfield on possible threats to voters’ rights. Only write-in candidate Andrew Dambrauskas (Dam-BROSH’-kuss) attended, and said he would oppose any attempt to make it more difficult to vote.
But Democrat Sue Scherer and Republican Dennis Shackelford both sent written messages to the meeting… and both said photo ID laws are not necessary and could inhibit the ability of some voters to cast a ballot. All three candidates say they would fight any attempt by the General Assembly to impose such a requirement.
