HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) -- His portrait hangs in the courthouse where he went to cast an advance ballot, but a former Kansas judge says that wasn't enough satisfy the state's new voter photo identification law.

The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/OEnMdw ) that retired Reno County District Judge Richard Rome was denied a primary election ballot last week because he didn't have photo identification with him.

The 77-year-old former judge says he was stunned -- especially because the three people at the polling table knew him.

Rome says he recently renewed his driver's license and hadn't received a new, permanent license with a photo. But he had the old one in his car, and used it to get a ballot.

Poll workers told the newspaper they're requiring photo ID from everyone, including the county's deputy elections officer.
