VOTER ID

While the Voter ID law had taken effect and impacted the primary races in February, a recent injunction has put the requirement that voters show identification on hold. Residents may still be asked for a current photo ID showing proof of residence, but it is not required. You will be required to sign in to the voter roll book when you arrive at the polls.

Nice breakdown Micheal! It's all easy to read and understand. Now can you make the automated phone calls stop??? ;-)
Micheal Foley April 03, 2012 at 01:04 PM
That's easy, Cheryl. Throw away your landline and get a cell phone. I haven't been bothered by those calls my entire adult life.

No Town of St. Joseph info?
Micheal Foley April 03, 2012 at 01:53 PM
Sorry. Hudson Patch covers the City of Hudson, the Town of Hudson and the Village of North Hudson. I'm just one guy. I can't cover everything. I have to draw the line somewhere.

Got a cell, but I also have kids at home.
Tina Bohl April 03, 2012 at 05:31 PM
Thanks for all your hard work, Micheal! Question... will there be election updates after 8:00 p.m. tonight?
Micheal Foley April 03, 2012 at 06:00 PM
Of course!
Tina Bohl April 03, 2012 at 06:32 PM
Super duper! Looking forward to it!
Cherie April 03, 2012 at 09:06 PM
Cheryl, check into purchasing a VoIP home phone device that uses your internet and existing phone and drop the phone company. You only pay a monthly tax of $3-4. I'm a mom and that's what I use -- automated phone call free.
Micheal Foley April 03, 2012 at 09:11 PM
VOIP phones are great! Reminds me of a blog post I wrote over a year ago: http://foleymo.com/why-do-we-all-still-have-desk-phones-at-our-j
