With the tie-breaking vote of Republican Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling, the Virginia Senate today approved, along party lines, a voter identification bill that would eliminate several forms of ID currently accepted at the polls.

Senate Bill 719, sponsored by Sen. Richard H. Black, R-Loudoun, would not go into effect until 2014 and stipulates a voter education component -- the result of a Democratic amendment the chamber adopted Monday, also thanks to Bolling's tie-breaking vote.
