Georgia: some poll workers asked for photo I.D., despite court orders
The Macon Telegraph reports: Some Bibb County poll workers did not seem to know that Georgia's new voter ID law was not in place for Tuesday's primary.
The Telegraph observed workers at several polling places refusing one of the 17 approved forms of identification unless accompanied by a photo ID or telling would-be voters that a picture ID was required.
Originally, Tuesday's primary was to have been the first election to require a photo ID for voting. But last week, a U.S. District Court judge blocked the state from enforcing the law after civil rights groups challenged it in court, arguing that it discriminated against poor, elderly and rural voters. -- Macon Telegraph | 07/19/2006 | Not all Bibb workers knew photo ID not required
