I?ve been asked to show my id every time I?ve voted in JC. It?s not voter suppression. Some poll works just can?t spell. I always end up pointing at my name, they let me sign and then I vote. I honestly feel like I can point at any name though.

Voting should require your identification. It is idiotic not to.

Maybe you looked like you were going to vote Republican?

Seriously though, they weren't asking at GVV this morning that I noticed, but I can tell you from history, it would make things a lot quicker if they did ask for ID, the poll workers seem to have trouble with the alphabet even when you spell your last name for them.

no ID request at GVV Church.

I'm going to hope that they were asking just to get your name right and help them look it up. But still, inappropriate and it was good to report it.

Maybe they have trouble spelling names and figured it was easier to ask for ID. So long as it wasn't a condition they had set on you voting. Still, not something they should get into the habit of. I don't think I've ever been asked for ID by anyone, despite having a somewhat confusing name.

What were the circumstances? When you went to the table did they ask you for it as they looked up your name in the book? Or was it when you signed the book? I was in a hurry once and really botched up my signature it looked nothing like the one in the book. They asked me to show ID and compared the signature they also made me write my signature again. I passed?my bad.

Report it. That is absolutely inappropriate.
