  •  they would need to present ID w/in 6 days (3+ / 0-)

    The statute maybe is a bit vague about what would be accepted as ID within 6 days -- I didn't stare really hard at that. But in general, it doesn't seem to solve the problem.

    Right now the focus should be on how to get acceptable ID. Later it can be on casting a provisional ballot if something goes wrong at the polling place. (It is a subtle topic, because in some cases, what you really need to do is to go somewhere else -- maybe just a different line at the same polling place -- instead of casting a PB. Gotchas like that have led some people to think of PBs as where voting rights go to die. But on balance, they have saved a lot of votes.)
