Ballot Question 4: Voters will choose to keep or repeal immigrant driver’s license law

After lawmakers passed an immigrant driver’s license law in June, there’s a proposal to strike it down in the Nov. 8 statewide election.

Ballot Question 4, as it will be presented on Election Day, asks voters whether they would keep or repeal that new law which allows anyone to test and qualify for a driver’s license, including undocumented immigrants.

A “yes” vote, supported by a large majority of law enforcement agencies and immigration rights groups, will keep the law. A “no” vote, supported by Republican gubernatorial candidate Geoff Diehl, will repeal it.
