How Could Voter ID Laws Majorly Impact Election Night Timetable?
Voter ID laws in key states could mean that new guidelines would make for a very long night on election night.
Senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano discussed the possibility today and explained the situation.
According to Napolitano, the laws in many states require voters to show an ID issued by the government to cast their vote. "So, if a person shows up and always voted at this place and always lived at this address but doesn't have ID, they can cast a provisional ballot."
The provisional ballots could cause
delays in some states in which they'll be counted only once officials can verify the person who cast the ballot is who they claim to be. He added, "In some states, they don't even count them unless the race in that state is so close it could affect the outcome."
