SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A bill to require voters to present identification to poll workers before casting a ballot has passed the Utah Senate.

House Bill 126, sponsored by Rep. Brad Daw, R-Orem, passed on Monday with a 26-3 vote.

The bill also would let voters who forget their IDs cast a provisional ballot. They'd then have five days to show the county clerk their driver's license or another accepted identification.

The bill was amended to require signs to be posted about the new policy at polling places. The bill now moves back to the House.
