Alabama Sec of State John Merrill offers ‘home visit’ for those seeking photo ID to vote — ‘Just call my cell

Yellowhammer,  July 9, 2018

On Friday, Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill took to Twitter to reiterate his pledge to ensure eligible voters were able to comply with the state’s voter identification laws by offering home visits for those unable to obtain identification otherwise.

Merrill was responding to a similar pledge from Alabama Republican Party chairwoman Terry Lathan, who made her comments about a Yellowhammer News story noting the five-year anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Shelby County v. Holder decision that gave states the authority to have voter identification laws.

Merrill included his cell phone number with the pledge to ensure any interested party could be in touch.
