BIRMINGHAM, Ala (WBRC-TV MyFoxAL.com)—Republicans in Alabama are prepping to push for a stronger law requiring voters to show photo identification at the polling place.
The renewed push for a photo ID law comes after Monday's 6-3 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court upholding an Indiana law.
Democratic state Rep. Alvin Holmes of Montgomery says requiring
voters to have a photo ID would disenfranchise elderly, poor and
Alabama's current voter ID law allows voters to show a wide
range of identification including utility bills.
