Voter ID requirement starting on June 3

Staff Writer

   Beginning with the June 3 primary elections, all Mississippi voters must show some form of photo identification, and the Grenada Circuit Clerk wants voters to be well advised.
   “It’s a state regulation and we take it very seriously,” said  Grenada Circuit Clerk Linda Barnette. “We’re here to help folks comply with the law,” she said.
   Those who already have a valid form of ID need not worry, nor should they seek an additional ID, according to Barnette.
   An acceptable form of ID is one issued by any state branch office, Barnette said. That includes things like driver’s licenses, passports, firearms licenses, student IDs, U.S. military IDs and tribal photos.
