Town Halls About New Voting Law
Pike County Probate Judge Wes Allen is trying to clear up any confusion about the new Alabama voting law.
Starting with the June 3 primary, voters in Alabama must have a specific type of photo identification to vote.
Judge Allen is holding town halls, free to the public, to explain the new law and answer any questions.
The remaining town hall meetings will be held at the Nutrition Center in Troy, 498 E. Walnut St., Wednesday March 19 at 10 a.m. And Monday, March 24 at 10:30 a.m. at the Goshen Senior Center, 535 Montgomery St.
"Just want to make sure that everyone knows if they do not have any type of valid identification, they can receive a free voter ID card from the Pike County board of registrars office or the secretary of state's office," Probate Judge Wes Allen said.
A voter can use any of the following forms of photo id at the polls- valid driver's license, non-driver id, Alabama photo voter id, state issued id, federal issued id, US passport, employee id from federal/state/county/municipal government/ entity of the state, student/employee id from state university or college, military id, tribal id.
