Re: Did You Have To Show Your ID To Vote?
I voted. This is what happened. I went to my polling place which is a public school. I first went on line to determine what my election district is. Then I went on the line. I gave the woman my election ID but she said my election district is what it says on the card which is not what the guy told me at the first line. So I looked for that election district. It doesn't exist. So I got guidance and they said that the election district I was told in the first line is my election district. From now on I will just go with my ID. So I stood on line again and this time the woman let me vote in that line. I gave my ID, she wrote my name on a card and I received the voting paper. They explained I had to fill in the bubble. I waited for 10 minutes then went behind the voting box. I filled in my candidates. Someone in Russian asked me to help him. He wanted me to verify if that guy's name on the ballot is Mitt Romney and I did. After I was finished I was confused where to scan it but then I found the machine. That was the easy part. I just scanned my paper and the machine took it. I was done. I voted for Gary Johnson for president and Kirsten Gillibrand for Senator(Kucinich endorsed her). The only thing I want to know is why are Obama and Romney also nominees of other parties? That's allowed? Obama is nominee for Democratic and Working families parties and Romney is nominee for Republican and Conservative parties.

Not in St. Louis
Gave her the card that came in the mail and when I was going to show her my ID, she said she didn't need it.
St Louis City is not reliable.

Re: Did You Have To Show Your ID To Vote?
Maryland , Nope.
Walked in, she asked my name and address.
I gave her first and last name, and street address.
She nodded and handed me the paper before I even finished with my street address because she just wanted to hear the house number.

I was in and out in 3 minutes flat.


I did - down here in Georgia - it was a two step process.

I went through one line to write down my name and address and sign a piece a paper and then another as a poll worker verified my information.

Curious what other voters experienced today.

Re: Did You Have To Show Your ID To Vote?
Yes, this is the third or fourth state I have voted in and the FIRST ONE that didn't send us a registration card or thing to bring. Here, we just had to produce official ID with our address on it or something close to that with and affidavit.

Simple process here, but the ballot was SHORT...only two pages..unlike the one in 2008 that was what...ten pages long or so? Nevada vs. North Dakota I suppose.

BTW, they did SCAN it (my license). I thought maybe I was getting liquor or smokes too at this point, lol! Nice to be TRACKED, eh?!

Nope-NY

As a matter of fact, they have set up voting places like the church next to my house, where one can walk in, fill out an affidavit that asks things like your name, address, social security number, AND if you're an American Citizen. Then you can vote.
Absolutely NO
verification of citizenship, eligibility or even if one is registered to vote.
Dozens of places like that all over NYC. They are making it EASY to scam/fraud!!!
How f***d up is that??

Someone in Russian? I assume you mean "foreign accent". You sure they were Russian? Not that it matters. You can be an American citizen and not speak a word of English as long as you pass the test. Granted it's not an easy test; most American's probably couldn't pass it.

NY (New York City) - No ID required unless your name is flagged (I don't know the criteria for being flagged). They look up your name in a register and you sign in under your registration signature - I ** assume ** they are supposed to check if the signatures match.

No. I'm in PA. They were supposed to ask even though I didn't have to show, but they didn't even ask. I had it on me but didn't want to show it because it would have been a pain in the ass getting it out after holding my toddler in my arms in the cold for 30 minutes.

I knew I didn't have to show it though. I would have had it ready if they wanted it.

Re: Did You Have To Show Your ID To Vote?
Didn't have to show ID, but my town has ledgers that they use for every election. It shows my signature, address, full name, etc.,. AND they check your current signature next to the one in the ledger everytime you vote. There is also a paper trail from another signature. My town does it right.

Texas - my husband just had to mess with them & handed them his VA (veterans administration) card. which has his picture on it & they would not take it.

and of course it pissed him off that his proof that he fought for his country wasn't good enough to vote with.

he eventually .... after arguing with them ... gave them his drivers license and voted.

No here in PA, but I gave it to her anyhow for spelling of my name, I get so tired of everyone asking how to spell it...

No issues at all, only one complaint in our county about one voting machine not accepting a vote.
