The state election board approved a letter stating that 17 forms of ID remain acceptable in order to vote. This includes non-photo forms of ID.

More than 300,000 voters were sent incorrect letters telling them that they would need a photo ID to vote come November.

"Any one of the different voter ID cards would help them instead of just having the six to go from. It's kind of hard with everyone coming into the country. At least it gives them a chance to do what they want to do and vote," said Lowndes County voter Jennifer Hardy.

A superior court judge threw out the voter photo ID law because he said it was unconstitutional. He felt it prevented people qualified to vote from doing so.
