FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Senate has passed a Republican-backed bill requiring people to have government-issued photo identification in order to vote.

The revised version would allow people lacking photo IDs to present other forms of identification in order to vote.

The alternate IDs could be debit or credit cards or Social Security cards.

The bill cleared the Senate State and Local Government Committee on a party-line vote Wednesday.

The measure now heads to the House.
