"After hoaxes and misinformation, Probate Judge McKinney joins Montgomery Democratic and Republican party leaders to clarify voter ID laws"

AL.com reports: Montgomery Probate Judge Reese McKinney -- along with Democrat and Republican party chairs and county officials -- held a joint press conference this morning at the Montgomery Election Center to dispel misinformation being circulated regarding the kinds of identification voters are required to show at the polls in the General Election on Nov. 6.

"Alabama does not have a photo identification requirement to vote," McKinney stressed. "Let me say that again and be very clear, while you must present one of the 27 forms of voter identification to vote in Alabama, photo identification is not required."

McKinney stressed that even though both political parties have conflicting opinions on the issue of photo ID cards at the polls, today's conference was a bi-partisan effort. -- Read the whole article --> After hoaxes and misinformation, Probate Judge McKinney joins Montgomery Democratic and Republican party leaders to clarify voter ID laws | al.com
