As previously indicated, the state Supreme Court has cleared the way for Photo-IDs issued by the Memphis library system to serve as credentials for the November 6 election in satisfaction of the 2011 Voter-ID law.

In an order issued on Thursday, the Court agreed to hear an appeal from state government of a previous ruling by the state Appeals Court in favor of the cards’ viability. But no action will be taken on that appeal until after the election, and the Court directed the appellant parties, Secretary of State Tre Hargett and state Election Coordinator Mark Goins, to issue their own order that the library IDs be accepted for this election.
