COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- State election officials have printed over 1,100 photo identification cards for voters to use at the polls to comply with South Carolina's new voter ID law.

State Election Commission's spokesman Chris Whitmire says the cards are issued by counties, but printed at the commission's Columbia headquarters because officials determined there wouldn't be enough demand to send a printer to all 46 counties.

Whitmire said Friday the 1,100 cards printed include duplicates made to correct errors and test cards printed for counties to look at.

South Carolina's law requiring voters to show a photo identification to cast a regular ballot gets its first big test later this month during primaries for the open 1st District U.S. House race in the Lowcountry.
