Bill Allowing Early Voting Without Photo ID Fails in House Committee

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A proposal to allow people to cast early votes without a photo ID has failed in the House.
The measure sponsored by Democratic House Minority Leader Craig Fitzhugh of Ripley would set up a system for photographing voters at the polling place instead of requiring them to provide government-issued photo identification.
The measure received seven votes in favor, but eight votes against in the House State and Local Government Committee on Tuesday.
A separate measure seeking to do away with the state’s new photo ID law altogether was delayed for a week.
