NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Knoxville woman has received her free state identification to vote after being denied a ballot in the Aug. 2 primary.
The Knoxville News Sentinel reported Libby Miller's parents said on Tuesday that a second attempt to get the ID for their mentally challenged 60-year-old daughter was successful.
Viola Miller had described a first attempt as "a wild goose chase" that included being told the free ID would cost $17.50.
The second attempt came Monday after the family made trips to a state vital records office and a Social Security office to get new, certified documents that meet state requirements for a free photo ID required for voting.
Libby Miller -- who had voted in every election since registering as a voter when she turned 18 --is now anticipating casting her ballot in the November presidential election.
