NAACP spreading the word about new voter ID laws


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Alabama voters should be prepared to show identification the next time they head to the polls.

The state’s new voter identification law is in effect just in time for the primary elections.

The Birmingham branch of the NAACP is on a mission to make sure everyone gets the word. They’re calling it their Voter Photo ID Victory Project.

“We’ll be conducting a grass roots campaign all throughout the greater Birmingham area to inform the citizens of their need for a photo ID and to assist them in whatever challenges they may have in securing that ID,” Hezekiah Jackson said.

Getting a photo ID is an easy and free process.

All anyone has to do is visit your county’s board of registrar’s office or stop by one of the secretary of state’s mobile photo ID sign up locations.
