NASHVILLE (AP) – AARP Tennessee is collaborating with the state's coordinator of elections to help people meet the requirements of a new law requiring photo identification to vote.

The two will hold a series of question and answer sessions around the state starting in Knoxville on Oct. 18. Elections Coordinator Mark Goins says he's grateful to AARP for its help in raising awareness about the new law.

Last week, a coalition of groups opposed to the measure say they want to repeal it during the next legislative session.

Members of the "No Barriers to the Ballot Box" campaign announced a petition drive that they hope will convince lawmakers that the requirement is unpopular.

The state estimates 126,000 registered voters don't have current driver's licenses with photos on them.
