State issues 663 photo IDs during special hours

NASHVILLE, TN. (AP) - State officials say 663 photo IDs were issued Saturday during special operating hours at 19 Tennessee driver service centers.

The centers will be open on the first Saturday of each month through next March for issuing such photos.

Under a new state law, beginning in 2012 voters will have to show a state or federal-issued photo ID to cast a ballot at the polls.

As of Oct. 30, the Department of Safety and Homeland Security had issued 3,071 photo IDs for voting purposes.
