    I’m disabled (hard of hearing) and yet I wonder why there isn’t a middle ground on this issue. Seems to me that we all need ID’s these days, so maybe this is an opportunity for advocates to help anyone who doesn’t yet have one.

    Theres, while we appreciate what you are saying, our opposition to the law is more about the fact that Tennessee lawmakers are taking away a person’s right to vote and telling them they have to have a very specific government-issued photo ID to get it back. Voting is supposed to be the most fair and equal process we have in our democracy. This law makes the process unfair and unequal.
