(WTVM) - An Alabama congresswoman is voicing her concerns over the state's new voter ID law.
Democratic congresswoman Terri Sewell says she's not a fan of the state's tough new law requiring everyone to show a photo ID at the voting booth.
Republicans in the state legislature defended the law saying it would eliminate voter fraud.
Sewell disagrees, saying her wheel chair-bound father's driver's license expired and he uses other IDs to prove who he is when he votes.
"I think about a lot of other disabled and seniors who may not have the chance to go get a photo ID and yet they have their Social Security Card," Sewell said.
Alabama still must submit its law for approval to the justice department.
