Voter ID Law

Good Tuesday morning from Gray. Here is a look at some of the stories we are working for 12 News Today.

Federal leaders say Virginia's new Voter Identification Law will be used in this upcoming election. As we get closer to election day in November, the Commonwealth continues to be in the spotlight as a battleground state. For voters this state law closes a loophole that allowed people to cast a ballot without identification. It also expands the types of accepted identification. We will explain what you need to know.

A woman charged in a deadly hit and run in Shockoe Bottom goes on trial today. Investigators say Jennifer Slemp drove away after hitting two men late one night back in April. She is just hours away from a bench trial. That means there's no jury. Only a judge will decide if she's responsible for a hit and run that killed a man last Spring.

Also, an update on a case we have been following. The man who murdered two brothers could spend the rest of his life in prison. The brothers were shot to death over dog waste! Join us for these stories and more on 12 News Today from 4:30-7am.
