CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Conservative activist Sharron Angle wants Nevada voters to decide whether to abolish the state health insurance exchange and require photo identification at the polls.

The Republican former assemblywoman and former U.S. Senate candidate filed two petitions this week with the Nevada Secretary of State.

Proponents would need to gather more than 55,000 signatures from all over the state to get either measure on the 2016 ballot. Each would need to pass two consecutive elections to become a constitutional amendment.

One proposes banning the exchange created as part of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul. The other proposes requiring proof of identity before casting a vote, and requiring the government to issue ID cards to those without one.

Both proposals were debated during this spring's legislative session, but did not pass.
