Election Day: I showed valid CHL card to verify my ID before voting
I wonder whether there are other states other than Utah that allows Concealed Handgun License (CHL) or CCW as a "photo ID" to verify identity as a registered voter citizen prior to casting ballot?
I showed my CHL to volunteers, which took them a moment to look up and locate my name and address to match the information on CHL card. I put on a signature and was given electronic ballot access card to cast the ballot.
Utah state law requires the proof of identification in two acceptable forms. I used the second identifying method with a voter registration card cut out of a mailed postcard.
The confused look on the volunteers' faces (older middle-aged people) is tad amusing with two required identifications provided. Showing CHL as ID for voter's identity must be fairly uncommon.
Consider me a satisfied RKBA patriot who believes in voting under a "free and just sovereign republic" as a civic duty. :wink:
