Voters in three parts of Alabama will participate in special elections Tuesday to help fill vacancies in the Alabama House of Representatives.

Voters who don't have a valid photo ID to use in Alabama's elections can get one free at county board of registrars' offices.

Alabama's chief election official, Secretary of State Jim Bennett, says registrars' offices in every county will be offering the free IDs, starting this week.

Alabama's new law requiring a valid photo ID to vote takes effect with the primary election June 3. Many types of photo IDs can be used, including an Alabama driver's license, Alabama non-driver ID, state-issued ID, federal ID, passport, Alabama college ID, military ID and employee ID from a federal, state, county or city government.

Those without a proper ID can get one free by going to a registrars' office with documents showing their full legal name, date of birth and address.
