New Law Blocks Out-of-State IDs for Voting

In the ongoing debate on voter IDs regulations, a new amendment approved by state legislators will now prevent IDs issued by other states from being used to vote. In a statement, Secretary of State Tre Hargett said, “This change mirrors similar laws in other states, including Indiana. Indiana’s photo ID law has been upheld by the United States Supreme Court.” WREG also notes that the Tennessee Supreme Court has said that Memphis public library photo ID cards can be accepted until it makes a final ruling on an appeal.
