November 13, 2015 Voter ID Pamphlet

What can I expect at the polling place?

Now that voters are bringing their IDs to the ballot, voting at your polling place will be a little different.
**Please be prepared & patient.
State It
As always, you’ll need to state your full name and address for the election official who checks you in. They’ll check your information in the poll book. Understandably, some people are uneasy about announcing their name in public, but it is the law, and it helps ensure openness in elections.
Show It
Next, it’s time to show your photo ID. That way, poll workers can compare your face to your photo and confirm that you really are you.
Sign It
Finally, you’ll sign the poll book (unless a physical disability prevents it). Your signature or mark should go right next to your name and address.
Now you’re ready to vote!
