Hargett Does PSAs on Photo ID Law

News release from Secretary of State’s office:
Secretary of State Tre Hargett is releasing two radio public service announcements this week, encouraging voters to bring photo identification with them to the polls this year.
The 30-second radio spots, which are being distributed to members of the Tennessee Association of Broadcasters, are part of an ongoing campaign to raise public awareness about the state’s voter photo ID law that took effect Jan.1.
Although there are some exceptions, the law generally requires voters to show valid photo identification before casting ballots. Information about the types of identification that are acceptable and how to obtain photo IDs is available at www.GoVoteTN.com or by calling 1-877-850-4959.
“It is vital that we continue to get the word out to Tennesseans about this new law,” Secretary Hargett said. “I encourage radio stations throughout the state to play these public service announcements as often as they can to assist us in spreading the message. We want Tennessee voters to show up at the polls knowing about what’s required to vote.”
