MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – The Alabama secretary of state’s office is planning to have staff traveling the state starting Monday to provide photo IDs to voters who need them for the upcoming elections.
Secretary of State Jim Bennett says the mobile site visits are in addition to the IDs being available in his Montgomery office and at county boards of registrars.
The visits will take about two months. They begin Monday in Alberta and Waterloo. Tuesday’s schedule includes Maplesville, Thorsby and Athens. The tour wraps up May 12 in Hoover.
The free IDs are for registered voters who don’t have one of the photo IDs that can be used to vote in Alabama. The approved IDs include an Alabama driver’s license, a non-driver ID issued by the state, military IDs and Alabama college IDs.
