MEMPHIS, TN -
(WMC-TV) - Memphis-issued photo library cards must be accepted by the Shelby County Election Commission at the polls as a valid form of voter identification.
The Supreme Court ordered Secretary of State Tre Hargett and state Elections Coordinator Mark Goins Thursday to advise the Shelby County Election Commission to accept library cards as identification for Tuesday's election.
Hargett and Goins had appealed a Court of Appeals decision that ruled library cards were government-issued photo IDs.
"The legislative intent was pretty clear that they rejected an amendment that would have allowed for local government IDs to be used, so we believe quite frankly that the court was incorrect in that," said Secretary of State Tre Hargett back in October.
When the appeal request was filed, people who were using library cards as a form of photo ID were being given a paper provisional ballot. This was to keep track of how people voted, in case the judge's decision about the library card validity is appealed.
City Attorney Morris and some members of the Wharton Administration will be voting at 1 p.m. Thursday at the Shelby County Election Commission using their Memphis Library Photo ID card.
"It's a great victory for the voters of the City of Memphis. I applaud Mayor Wharton for standing up for the citizens and voters in Memphis and seeing this through to its successful resolution before the highest court in the State of Tennessee," said Memphis City Attorney Herman Morris in a statement.
Thursday is the last day of early voting for the general election, Election Day is Nov. 6.
