Elections offices across Tenn helping with new law

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - State officials say elections offices across Tennessee will host outreach programs Tuesday to inform voters about a new requirement.

A state law that takes effect Jan. 1 requires voters to show valid photo identification at the polls.

State election officials believe this is the first time in Tennessee history that such an education project has been done in all 95 counties on the same day.

Formats may vary from county to county, but most are having town hall meetings allowing citizens to ask questions about the requirement.

The law has become controversial because some state driver's licenses do not have a photo of the driver.
