MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — The secretary of state's plan for implementing Alabama's photo ID requirement for voting includes making free ID cards available through mobile vans, county board of registrars' offices, and the state Department of Senior Services. Secretary of State Jim Bennett issued his final rules Tuesday for implementing the law for the 2014 elections. The law requires voters to show a photo ID, such as a driver's license, passport or student ID from a university. For those lacking photo IDs, Alabama plans to provide free photo IDs for voting at many locations. Bennett says the free IDs should begin as soon as January. He's currently seeking a vendor to make the cards. So far, one company, Police & Sheriff's Press of Vidalia, Ga., has submitted a proposal of $300,000 over five years.
