    My voter registration card has clearly indicated my Democrat-ness since I voted in the primaries. It's stamped right on there.

      asked for IDS and this is a republican area.  I was pleased. I gave them my drivers license as I always have done for years and years just because they get confused as my name is hyphenated and so few women around here do that apparently.  

      But I used to just show an electric bill with my name and address on it as I tend not to show a voter card, never have.  

      There was a young college student trying to vote for the first time today. The election official was really nice to her, very polite and capable. I was impressed as he called the country registrar trying to find out why she is not listed in the county. She said she registered online and she is a student. But I watched this carefully as she is an African American female...not pertinent but a very, very attractive young woman.  He explained to her since there is no record of her registration and he tried everything to find a record of her registration, apologized profusely and offered her a provisional ballot.

      The election official was so nice and kept apologizing to the young lady and reassuring her that sometimes it happens that online registrations do not register completely and he was very sad about it. Even after I finished voting, he was still apologizing to her and explaining provisional ballots.
