Opponents Want to Overturn Voter ID Law

Opponents of Georgia's photo identification law are taking their fight all the way to federal court. Voter and civil rights groups are in Rome for a court hearing today. They're trying to overturn Georgia's new law requiring voters to show a state-issued photo ID at the polls.

They say the law discriminates against the poor and elderly.

Meanwhile, the Georgia Department of Driver Services is sending a bus around the state to help residents who can't get out get their IDs.

The bus will be in Statesboro at 102 South Main Street on Tuesday, November 1. On Wednesday, November 2, it'll stop in Hinesville at the old Liberty County Hospital on Frazier Drive and Highway 81.
