NAME: Brian Savilla

CANDIDATE FOR: West Virginia Secretary of State

PARTY: Republican

CITY: Hurricane

BIOGRAPHY: I am currently in the House of Delegates for the 14th District and a social studies teacher in Putnam County.

QUESTION & ANSWER: Would you support a law requiring West Virginia voters to show a photo ID at the polls?

"Yes. Citizens must show their ID's to do nearly everything, except vote. It does not disenfranchise nor discriminate anymore than cashing a check or flying a plane. It simply adds further security to our elections. Next year you will even need ID to receive Social Security due to the Feds."

OTHER CANDIDATES: Savilla faces Democrat Natalie Tennant in the general election.
