The Tennessee Court of Appeals handed down a ruling Thursday when it comes to the state's voter ID law.
The three-judge panel upheld the law requiring voters to show photo ID at polling places.
The opinion says the ID requirement is allowed under the state constitution and the cost of getting a birth certificate to get a photo ID does not amount to a poll tax.
The panel also ruled election officials must accept an ID issued by the Memphis, Tennessee library.
That case was brought by the City of Memphis and two voters who did not have photo identification and cast provisional ballots during the August primary.
