I just got back from voting, and I gotta tell you folks, I'm a little upset. I didnt have to wait in line, which was lovely. As I was retrieving my ballot, I was asked for my photo ID. I asked her why she needed my ID, and she looked me in the face and told me it was the law. I told her that was not true, and it was disappointing that she would be telling people that, as people without a photo ID may be scared out of voting. You do not need an ID to vote in N.H., and telling people that you do should be against the law. UGH. Granted, this happened in Windham, where very few people wouldn't have a photo ID. I worry that the communities with a larger population at or near the poverty level may be misleading voters, and possibly deterring eligible voters from doing their democratic duty. I wish I had voted earlier, as I am sure that this behavior has been going on all day.
