www.en.wikipedia.com

A federal lawsuit to allow voters to use photo ID's issued by Memphis’ public library has been denied. U.S. District Judge Kevin Sharp originally denied the city’s request for a temporary injunction ordering the election commission to accept the library ID's.

Trauger said ID's are only valid if they are issued by the state, not county or cities. Trauger did express frustration with the law.
