Beginning January 1, 2012, all voters must present an ID, meeting the requirements below, containing the voter’s name and photograph, whether voting early or on Election Day. These requirements DO NOT apply to elections in 2011.
Any of the following IDs may be used, even if expired:
• Tennessee driver license with your photo
• United States Passport
• Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security photo ID
• Photo ID issued by the federal or state government, such as an employee ID from the U.S. Department of Energy with your photo
• United States Military photo ID, including a Veteran Identification Card
• State-issued handgun carry permit card with your photo
What forms of photo ID are NOT acceptable?
• College student photo IDs
• Photo IDs not issued by the federal or state government, such as your discount club or bank card with your photo
Who is exempt?
• Voters who vote absentee by mail (view requirements at http://www.tn.gov/sos/election/bymail.htm)
• Voters who are residents of a licensed nursing home or assisted living center and who vote at the facility
• Voters who are hospitalized
• Voters with a religious objection to being photographed
• Voters who are indigent and unable to obtain a photo ID without paying a fee
What if I do not bring a photo ID to the polling place?
• If you do not bring a photo ID, you will vote a provisional ballot.
• You will then have until two (2) business days after Election Day to return to the election commission office to show a valid photo ID.
What if I do not have a photo ID?
• You may obtain a free photo ID to vote from the Department of Safety and Homeland Security at a driver service center. You will need proof of citizenship (such as a birth certificate), two proofs of Tennessee residency (such as a voter registration card, utility bill, vehicle registration/title, or bank statement), and if your name differs from that on your primary ID, proof of the changed name (such as certified marriage certificate, divorce decree, certified court order, etc.).
• If you do not have a photo on your driver’s license and no other form of valid photo ID, you may visit a driver service center or participating county clerk’s office to have your photo added to your license for free upon request.
• You may use the “express service” line at the driver service center to obtain your photo ID to minimize wait times.
• NOTE: If you already have a valid government-issued photo ID, the Department of Safety will not issue a free photo ID to you.

Produced in 2007 by the Baton Rouge, LA Chamber of Commerce, this document describes some of the reasons collective bargaining is bad for education.
In public school districts across the nation, collective bargaining agreements frequently run in excess of 100 pages, creating a web of bureaucracy that can be restrictive and onerous for school boards, administrators, and teachers. Such documents tend to include rules that:
- require teacher pay be based on years of experience and level of education, not on performance
- make it virtually impossible to dismiss teachers for poor performance and/or misconduct
- require principals to give advance notice to teachers before visiting classrooms to evaluate performance
- limit the number of conferences and other forums in which teachers meet with parents
- give unions access to school mailboxes, bulletin boards, classrooms, and other facilities to use for their own purposes
