(Note: the quote below is from a prior thread but I am commenting on it separately in this new post because the subject is a bit off-topic from the older thread which was already lengthy).
There is an "ID required" box on the Voter Details screen. This box was blank for every one of the new voters indicating that we were not to ask for ID.
I thought that I had read in the paper that first timer voters would need to show ID. But it is not so.
Also, I was misinformed regarding voters who had had multiple mailings returned to the Board of Elections as undeliverable. Their status is designated as "Inactive" on the screen but they are not required to show ID nor are they required to use a provisional ballot.
This last case disturbs me the most. Multiple returned mailings clearly indicates that it is highly probable the person no longer lives at that address (and might not even be alive). Yet all we can do as a book judge is ask if they still live at the address and then, if they say yes, let them vote by machine. So, if you know of someone who has died or moved out of state, you simply need to know their name, address and month and day of their birth. There is almost NO risk of getting caught.
