A voter fills out her ballot at the Thunder Bird Gymnasium at Casper College Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 6, 2018.

CHEYENNE (AP) — The Wyoming House of Representatives has defeated a proposed measure to require voters to present photo identification before being allowed to cast a ballot.

House Bill 192 failed on a 30-29 vote Wednesday.

Under the bill proposed by Casper Republican Chuck Gray, voters would be required to show a "current, valid photo identification before voting."

Proponents argued that the measure would help ensure the integrity of elections in the state by preventing voter fraud, while opponents said there isn't a problem with voter fraud in Wyoming.
