Voter ID

Using a Student ID Card as Voter ID (2015)

In 2015, Fair Elections Legal Network and Nashville law firm, Barrett Johnston Martin & Garrison, LLC filed a federal lawsuit challenging Tennessee’s voter ID law as violating the voting rights of Tennessee students. The state’s voter ID law allows voters to use public college and university faculty and employee ID cards but not student ID cards issued by the same institutions. Unfortunately, the case was ultimately dismissed, but brought attention to the nationwide issue of student ID as voter ID.
