While it is not in the story itself, it is in the comments. It seems that some personnel at the voting precints don't quite understand the Michigan law.

If you would have read through the comments you would have seen one from one of the posters that had his ID on him but refused to show it. It is quite obvious that this place was ignoring the law.

I wonder why he didnt just show his I.D. if as he claimed he had one on him?
Or, he could have just signed the back.
Sounds like sour grapes to me.

No, he was testing the system. Did you read the one comment about the voter being turned away? Like I said previously in another forum I don't have a problem showing my License and Voter ID card when I vote. But then again I can see a young voter not knowing the difference.

When I went to vote today I saw a kid trying to vote. His father had voted previously. They had the same name, but different middle names. They had mistakenly given his father his voter name, so this kid was given his fathers vote.

I also heard the kid behind me saying he only understood 1 of the proposals listed on the ballot, so he was only going to vote for the 1 he knew about. The person that he came with just said vote blah, blah, blah. I applaud the young man for standing up and saying I am not going to vote for something I don't know about and I don't want my vote to count. What an amazing young man.

He didn't understand it because the Democratic Party didn't pay him to vote on that particular item.

Sounds like the patriots won't be inviting Newt to their new country.

Any news if Doocey may have dropped a Duecey in his pants?

Sadly, they all claim to be adults but based on their behavior, I have my doubts. I have teenagers that don't behave as childishly as these tools.
