Clarification on using library card as ID for voting

Just so it’s clear to readers, the exception to allow a voter to show a library card as ID is only applicable (as upheld and pending further appeal) in Shelby County. No other governing body within Tennessee has allowed the library card exception, so if you aren’t in Shelby County, don’t try to vote with only a library card as your form of photo ID.

And if you are in Shelby County, I would recommend using something else, because the question is not settled. UPDATE: and while it’s not settled, it’s likely possible that a stay will be placed on the appellate court ruling, which means that library cards would not be valid ID in the meantime.

Thanks to News Channel 9 staff for alerting me to the need for clarification, and to Chris Connolly for further updates.
