TN Bill ending ID requirement for early voting fails
A proposal to allow people to cast early votes in Tennessee without a photo ID has failed in the state House. The measure sponsored by Democratic House Minority Leader Craig Fitzhugh sets up a system for photographing voters at the polling place instead of requiring them to provide government-issued photo identification. The measure failed Tuesday in the House State and Local Government Committee by one vote. A separate measure seeking to do away with the state's new photo ID law altogether was delayed for a week.
