Let Us Lighten Up All This Election Stuff a Bit (This is NOT Political at all)

So tonight as I was verifying my voting location I read the back of my voter registration card. I found this very humorous so I thought that I would share. I have bolded my favorite parts!

"Voters must bring identification to the polls in order to verify identity. Identification may include a current and valid photo identification, a military identification, or a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document, other than this reminder or a voter registration notification, that shows the voter's name and current address. Voters who do not provide one of these documents will STILL be able to vote by providing the last four digits of the voter's social security number and by casting a provisional ballot. Voters who do not have ANY of the above forms of identification, including a social security number, will STILL be able to vote by signing an affirmation swearing to the voter's identity under penalty of election falsification and by casting a provisional ballot."

I mean couldn't they have just shortened it up and said something like:

"We prefer you bring identification that shows you are really a legal citizen of the United States, but hey if you are lazy or are not a legal citizen we don't really care and will let you vote no matter what."

This made me smile :)



  1. Lol. That's awesome. I enjoyed that.

  2. That is pretty funny. I wonder if anyone takes them up on that offer?
