"Never got the chance to meet Sean Taylor, but his legacy is embedded in our franchise. Because of that... we play with him every game."
The easier way is to have people scan a card ( ID, credit, library, or whatever) at a machine with all of their info...then get proof of that (via receipt) , then go vote.
It's pretty simple. Hell I have been to clubs where they have machines to check IDs. And that was a decade ago.
Thanks for the sig LCSF
Didn't have any problems when I voted...then again I did the absentee ballot thing. Think I'm gonna be doing that every 4 years.
I didnt have to show my id at all. The lady asked me how to spell my first and last name and then gave me the card to go vote. When I tried to show her my voter registration card, she told me that I didnt need it.
The guy that was in front of me had quite the opposite problem. He showed up with his voter registration card and the lady told him that he was not a registered voter. Even though he had the proof in his hand. She ended up gaving him a provisional ballot, but it seems to me that there should be a better system.
Being Airborne isn't about just being crazy enough to jump out of a plane. It's an attitude that doesn't go away whether your 18 or 80. We are like a college fraternity- the hazing is our training, but our bond isn't Greek Letters, its courage and blood symbolized by silver wings.
That sucks, SS. But as you said, I don't think it was a big enough problem to swing the election at all. But nonetheless this is something that should be looked into for efficiency.
The workers at my station had been there all day, and by the time I got there to vote at 4pm, they looked like the walking dead... I had even asked them if they were able to get something to eat yet and they said "yes, we've taken an hour break to get something to eat today." But for people who aren't likely used to sitting there all day and going line for line and checking peoples names off, it's understandable (not necessarily excusable) that they may mark off the wrong person a time or two.
In Raleigh it goes like this:
Two lines by last name. A-K and L-Z.
You walk up and say your last name, first name, and then address.
Then you sign that your info is correct and you go get your ballot.
Could you go back later and be your neighbor? Only if you knew their name and address.
I am surprised so many places still use paper systems.
I voted in Montgomery County and everything was electronic, except the receipt they print off for you to sign.

I think the whole mechanics of voting is in for a major overhaul. Obama, in his acceptance speech early Wednesday morning, made a very pointed comment about that. He thanked people for voting "whether you voted for the first time, or waited in line for a very long time." Then he added, with that serious look of his, "by the way we have to fix that."
