TN Couple To Testify About Voter I.D.

A retired couple from Murfreesboro has been asked to testify before a House subcommittee about their experience with Tennessee’s new law requiring a photo ID to vote.

House Judiciary Committee Democrats are seeking hearings on the impact of state voting law changes and whether they create barriers to voting.

Lee Campbell said his wife, Phyllis, had to get a new photo ID because her current driver’s license does not include a photo.

The state has promised to provide photo IDs free of charge, but Lee Campbell told The Daily News Journal that a worker at the testing center said it would require too much paperwork and encouraged them to pay to renew her license ( ).

The Campbells are scheduled to speak at a hearing scheduled for Nov. 14.
