Prohibits citizens from casting a regular ballot at the polls unless they present a government-issued photo-identification card. Restricts voting by citizens who fail to present government-issued photo-identification to casting provisional ballots. Invalidates mail-in and provisional ballots unless elections official verifies that last four digits of voter's government-issued identification number on ballot envelope are consistent with voter's corresponding government records. Establishes that ballots from absent military personnel are timely if received no later than 15 days after election.

These costs probably would not be significant.
