Voter ID: It's the Law. Be Respectful to the Ballot Clerks.

As I think most of us are aware, NH does have a voter ID law. I can't nor do I want to speak about what happens in other states, but in NH, you can indeed vote without a valid photo ID. There are a number of processes in place to still allow you to vote ( as outlined below in the informational guide published by the NH SOS.) There is also a very simple way to vote if you do not have a valid photo ID.  "In addition to the forms of photo identification authorized in subparagraph (a), the identification requirements of paragraph I may be satisfied by verification of the person's identity by a moderator or supervisor of the checklist or the clerk of a town, ward, or city."
Some voters ( not many thankfully) choose ballot day to express their dissatisfaction with the law, by being overbearing or downright disrespectful to the volunteers who spend 13 hours or more working the polls. Thank them for their hard work and dedication, don't disrespect them.
