Re: “UPDATE: Former Pima County Supervisor Ann Day Killed in Car Crash

Maybe we need to re-install the radar speed cameras to catch these over the speed limit...

Re: “CD1: Tobin Announces Challenge to US Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick

If he doesn't live in CD 1 how can he run to represent those in that district? Moving there now is equivalent to a carpetbagger from just after the Civil War.

Re: “Serraglio

I participated in many meaningful comment exchanges about ADS articles in the past; however, I have no intention of joining "facebook", "twitter", or other unsecure way for hackers and criminals to cause undue harm.

Re: “Serraglio

I live in Santa Cruz County and worked as a poll worker. Each precinct had several laminated instructions concerning the three levels of IDs required. The purpose is to ensure that a person who wants to vote is on the "roster" of voters for that precinct and has an ID that shows a residence in the precinct. Living in the precinct is critical because there are different ballots based on your address. For example, you can only vote for a Nogales City Council member if you live inside the city limits or for school board members if you live in that School District.

There are three lists for IDs, a fairly short "A list of picture IDs such as a driver's license, with your current address (sometimes they go to DMV and get a corrected one before the polls close). The "B" list is for those with a picture ID but one without your address (such as a military ID card or passport) so something else that shows your name and address (utility bill, etc.) will also be required. The "C" list is for IDs that show name and address without a picture, and two are required, such as a utility bill and your voter ID card (has no picture).

Yes, Randy, a picture ID is NOT required, as the rules are clear for the "C" list IDs. We have at least 25 copies of the kinds of IDs for A, B, and C lists, in English and Spanish, but almost all had the right kind(s) of ID. Those without, were provided conditional ballots (which require verification within 5 days, usually, of the election) or provisional ballots when the address was wrong on an ID, etc. ALL who wanted to vote, were allowed to vote. We never turn them away because anyone can use a provisional ballot; however, when one shows up at the wrong precinct, we send them to the proper one, so they can use the correct ballot for there current address.

From this poll workers view, understanding the A, B, and Cs of IDs is a part of our required training in Santa Cruz County for all poll workers. Again, we never turn voters away, everyone votes who lives in the precinct. And, I've been doing this since Arizona started requiring IDs, without any problems. Both training and understanding the law how poll workers will NOT disenfranchise voters.

Re: “The Skinny

I don't see how "not now!" comment concerning how the military benefited by the bill after they had already agreed to a $350 billion cut and then 50% of a possible 1.4 Trillion (along with SS, Medicare/caid), if that amount isn't cut before the end of this year. No other part of the budget took such a hit.
