If you provide appropriate identification, such as a driver’s license, when you go to vote, a poll worker will verify your name and address against a list of people who have voted in the past. This verification process permits you to vote. If your information does not appear on the verification list, however, you still can be eligible to vote. Any poll worker who knows you personally can vouch for your identity, which allows you to vote. Additionally, if your information is not on the verification list and no poll worker can personally vouch for you, you can vote simply by signing a sworn affidavit stating that you are a resident of the precinct and otherwise qualified to vote.
