Decision Expected Soon on Whether Tennessee Must Let Voters at Polls Identify Themselves with Memphis Photo-Library Cards

A decision is expected momentarily on whether the state of Tennessee must let voters at the polls identify themselves with a City of Memphis library card. Memphis library cards include a photo of the holder, as well as a bar code. The lawsuit was filed by several Memphis voters, plus the city of Memphis. One of the plaintiff-voters’ drivers license was recently stolen and she has not been able to replace it yet, but she does have her photo-ID library card. However the state law does not permit that kind of photo-ID. The case is Turner-Golden v Hargett, middle district, 3:12-cv-765. See this story.
