Shelby County Commissioner Henri E. Brooks will be the featured speaker for a Voter Education Forum set for Sunday (Feb. 26) at Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church at 491 East McLemore Ave.

The one-hour session has a 9:30 a.m. start time. Brooks will provide essential information about the new Photo Voter ID Law and the need for federal or state-issued photo ID cards to cast a ballot in upcoming elections, beginning with the March 6 Primary in Shelby County.

In addition, Brooks will share details about her partnership with local churches to provide round-trip transportation to the Drivers License Centers for persons needing to get state-issued photo ID cards on Saturday, March 3 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Following the discussion, Brooks will field questions from the audience while targeting some of the most asked Voting Law questions such as:

• How do persons in a hospital, or a nursing home vote?

• Will new voters receive a voter photo I.D. when they register if they desire one?

• Is there a deadline for receiving a photo I.D. in order to vote in the November General Election?

• Is there a problem if a person’s driver’s license is from another state, and he or she has never voted in Tennessee?

• If a person does not have a passport or a birth certificate, and does not have his telephone or utilities in his or her name, and has no bank account, how can he or she receive a photo I. D.?

• Is the Photo I.D. Law an amendment to the Constitution concerning the right to vote?

• Are voters required to vote in the Primary Election in March in order to vote in the November General Election?

• Why do some states require the photo I. D. and other states do not?

• What is the rationale for the photo I.D. requirement?

• Is this requirement mandatory in all elections local, state, and national from now on?
