CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Democratic Secretary of State Ross Miller says he'll sponsor a bill in the upcoming Legislature to establish a photo identification requirement to vote in Nevada.

Speaking to reporters Tuesday, Miller says his proposal would require photo ID of registered voters be included in polling books kept by county election officials. Workers would then check the photos on file when someone signs in to vote.

Poll workers would take photos of anyone who lacks a photo ID to be included in the records.

Miller says the move would quell complaints about voter fraud. He also says it would be less onerous on the public because voters would only have to show a photo ID once.

Miller says a similar proposal in Minnesota failed but had an estimated cost of $20 million.
