I did my duty after work, but I thought I would share this PLEASANT experience with you...
I registered to vote a year ago when my DMV registration was up. They had a check box and I checked it. Nothing showed up... Of course, I never bothered to check to make sure that I was registered...
Went to my polling place, conveniently across the street from my apartment (and I appreciate that).
I'm not on the list, so they can make me a "provisional voter" so I still get to vote. All they needed was a picture ID.
WELLLLLLLL, I don't have a picture ID at this time. The court has it because I made the mistake of taking responsibility for my actions when I got that Speeding over 100 mph ticket (I'm in San Diego county). So they pulled my card for 30 days. No picture ID, unless you count the Virtual NASCAR simulator license I have! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Luckily there was someone there who could look up the requirements. All they needed was two forms of documents showing me I was who I was. A valid vehicle registration and some mail (bills) addressed to me and I was valid.
SO, to make a long story not so much short... I got my opportunity to vote. But I thought I was gonna be screwed! I'm very happy with the opportunities that were given to me to allow me to vote!
