Local clerks to help issue photo driver's licenses

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - State officials say 30 county clerks across Tennessee have agreed to issue photo driver's licenses at no charge to registered voters who do not have them.

Under a new state law, starting in 2012 voters will have to show a state or federal photo ID to vote in Tennessee.

According to state officials, county clerks will provide this service beginning next Monday and continuing through March 12, a week after the presidential primary election.

Additionally, beginning in November, driver service centers will be open on the first Saturday of each month in 15 counties to make photo driver's licenses or IDs for voting purposes only.
