Save the date: The 2012 SIR will focus on international media issues. It will be held at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield on Tuesday, May 15.
A wave of legislation tightening restrictions on voting has suddenly swept across the nation ahead of the 2012 national elections. More than a dozen states have already passed laws imposing new restrictions on voter registration drives, cutting back early voting periods, or requiring new stringent photo identification.
The League of Women Voters of Connecticut assures state residents that there will be no new changes in requirements for voting in the upcoming elections to be held on Tuesday, November 8. As before, a registered voter will have to show identification or sign an affidavit. Acceptable polling-place identification can be:
- a driver’s license
- a non-driver DMV photo ID
- a Social Security card
- any other “preprinted form of identification,” with either your name and address, or name and signature, or name and photo
If you fail to bring identification, an affidavit form issued by the Secretary of the State will be available at your polling place and must be countersigned by an Assistant Registrar of Voters at that poll.
