May 6 San Antonio Election: Most Voters Will Stay Home

Excerpt: 

[When] I voted early in the bowels of the Bexar County Justice Center in November,...

a poll worker walked up and down the line of waiting voters bellowing in an authoritative voice: “You must have a valid Texas driver’s license to vote. Get out your valid Texas driver’s license…”

“Actually, that is not true, ” I interrupted her, stepping out of line and speaking loudly enough for other voters to hear me. A uniformed deputy sheriff took a step closer to me as if I posed a threat. He backed off as he realized I was speaking in a normal, unthreatening voice and just might know what I was talking about. “You do not need a valid driver’s license,” I told people, most of them averting eye contact, made nervous by my challenge. I cited the various other forms of acceptable identification.

To her credit, the poll worker said she would check later with an election judge, but that sort of ignorance, twinned with her projection of petty authority, is exactly the kind of intimidation that keeps Spanish language-dominant citizens away from the polls. Have you ever been yelled at by an authority figure in a language where you lack fluency? It’s intimidating, especially when a man in uniform with a sidearm is standing a few feet away.

Missouri SOS Confident Voter ID Funding Request Will Be Honored

Excerpt: 

Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft says he feels confident his office will get $1.4 million to carry out the state’s new photo ID requirement to vote. Ashcroft says the legislature and governor agree with that figure. ...

Under the law approved by Missouri voters last year, a government-issued photo ID and supporting documentation, like a birth certificate would be paid for by the state. Those without a photo ID could still vote if they sign a waiver and show a utility bill or paycheck.

Ashcroft says his budget request includes fulfilling the law’s requirements and advertising to educate the public about voter requirements. ...

Ashcroft says the first elections under the new law will be in August.
