If you haven’t already, get out and vote.  We’ve just received word from the Committee of Seventy saying that turnout is very high throughout the city. 

Vote as early as possible to avoid the rush right before the polls close.  If you do vote late, remember that you must be permitted to vote if you are in line by 8:00 p.m.

So far, according to the Committee of Seventy, the two issues that are most prevalent at the polls are:

1) Voters whose names are not in the poll book; and
2) Voters who are registered as members of one party in the poll book, but who are, in fact, registered as a member of another party.

If this happens to you, you can still vote by provisional ballot.

Also, remember, first time voters or people voting for the first time in a new district should bring ID with them.  If you don’t have ID, you’ll also have to vote on a provisional ballot.  Here’s a list of everything that qualifies as proof of identification.  Remember, picture ID is best, but there are a lot of other options, too.
