If your Picture ID doesn't have your current address, bring official mail (utility bill, cable bill, rent agreement, etc). To be safe, bring as many forms of ID as possible.- Always bring a voter registration card if you have one.- If your name is not on the registration list, cast a provisional ballot. No one can be legally turned away at the polls.- Be patient. If my experience down in New York's 55th election district is at all typical, you're going to have to wait a long, long time to pull that lever. One of the two voting machines was broken. To get to the other, you had to get a card from a pair of election workers. This was no simple operation. One -- tasked with looking up names on the voter rolls -- clearly couldn't read; he kept looking for "Shachtman" under W, and then J. The other, an shambling octogenarian with a cataracted right eye, was responsible for writing your name on the card. But his hands shook so badly, it took about 5 minutes to squeeze out each name. When I suggested to a supervisor there that a personnel shift might be in order, he told me a long parable about the great Jewish philosopher Maimonides, and then called me a trouble-maker.
