TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansans would have to show photo identification to vote starting in 2010 under a compromise bill passed by the Senate.

The 27-3 vote Tuesday sends the measure to the House.

It requires all voters except those in the military, disabled or age 65 or older to show an ID with a photo and signature each time they vote. It calls for the state to provide free photo IDs to low-income people.

The proposal got a renewed life because of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling last month that an Indiana voter ID law was constitutional.
