Warren County Election Commission informs voters of new law
Placeholder Image
The Tennessee General Assembly recently passed a law to make the election process more secure. Beginning in 2012, voters must present identification bearing their name and photograph in order to vote, just as if they were boarding an airplane or cashing a check.The process is simple: Voters who do not have a valid photo ID may obtain a free photo ID from any participating Department of Safety driver service center across the state. And voters over the age of 60 who have a driver’s license without a photo, and no other valid photo ID, may have their photo added to their license free of charge.County election commissions are making efforts now to get the message out about the changes well in advance of the 2012 elections.“Our staff is prepared to help voters learn about new requirements, and, if necessary, get a photo ID,” said Donna Smith, Warren County administrator of elections.
