H.O.W. All Of Us Can Still Vote
Even Without Photos.
A lot of changes this year makes is more difficult to vote. Basically, it is more difficult for African Americans, Hispanics, and poor people to vote. One of these is voter fraud, which has not happened as much has been, as it has been claimed to have happened . At this time only 15 states have actually require voter I.D. Those states are.
Mississippi ( Pending)
New Hampshire ( Pending)
South Carolina (Pending)
Texas ( Pending In Court)
Wisconsin (Pending In Court)
However, even though voting may seem more difficult, there are still many ways people can still vote,
1) Register by mail- People can still register to vote by mail, or online. Of course this is a step by step process, but is still important and it still counts as a vote.
2) Absentee Ballot- A ballot can be sent to you by WWW. FVAP.GOV. Absentee voting is a step by step process, but it still counts. The information and the instructions will be mailed to you.
3) Voters overseas have a number of options. They can fax, email using the internet. Please consult the Federal Assistance Programs in your state for more information. Simply type in the name of your state, and follow the information given to you.
4) Provisional Ballot. Verification has changed state by state. Of course in some states you have to have a picture I.D. but what people have not been told is people can still vote using, a billing statement, a payment stub, a social security card. If you do not have any of these you can use what is called a provisional ballot. A provisional ballot is a form which people can use, by signing in using their social security number. This is not valid in all states.
5) People with disabilities- Many people with disabilities can vote. People who cannot get to the polls to vote or people who are in long term care facilities can vote. One of the most important places for people with disabilities or people in long term care facilities to get information on how to vote is:
WWW.EAC.GOV or the United States Election Assistance Commission.
This site can help people register to vote, it can also help people who use english as second language vote. This is a wonderful site. If offers help to so many people.
