Limestone County offering free photo IDs to vote


Voters who don’t have a valid photo ID to use in Alabama's elections can get one free at the Limestone County board of registrars’ office. Alabama's chief election official, Secretary of State Jim Bennett, said registrars’ offices in every county will be offering the free IDs, starting this week.

The Limestone County office is on the second floor of the Clinton Street Courthouse Annex in Athens. Those without a proper ID can get one free by going to the registrars' office with documents showing their full legal name, date of birth and address.

Only those who are registered to vote in Alabama and do not already have a photo ID from any county, state or agency are eligible for the voter ID card. 


Alabama’s new law requiring a valid photo ID to vote takes effect with the primary election June 3.
