NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A proposal that requires Tennessee voters to show photo identification before they can cast ballots has been signed by the governor. Under the proposal, a person who can't show proper identification would be able to vote by provisional ballot, and individuals in nursing homes or group homes would be exempt. Supporters say the law is needed to protect the integrity of the ballot box, while opponents are concerned it might disenfranchise voters.
