Today the Tennessee Court of Appeals upheld the
state's new law requiring voters to show photo identification at
polling places and ruled that election officials must accept an ID
issued by the Memphis library.
Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey released the following statement on today's appeals court ruling:
"While allowing library cards clearly violates the legislative intent of this law, the court rightly affirmed the law's constitutionality. Just yesterday, we saw Democrat Party voter fraud efforts make national news in Virginia, as the son of a U.S. Congressman was caught on tape explaining how to commit fraud at the ballot box. This is exactly the type of illegal behavior our law will stop. Tennessee's voter ID law is necessary, proper and completely constitutional. This has been made plain by the courts and remains undisputed."
