NYC residents can vote at any New York state polling location today

iheartchaos:

Just a reminder New Yorkers, if you haven’t gotten out to vote already or you’re not sure where to vote, because of the hurricane, you can vote at any polling place in New York state. If you are a resident of New York City or Westchester, Long Island or Rockland County, you can vote anywhere in the state of New York. So go do it.

Tennessee Supreme Court Rules Memphis Library Cards Can Be Used at the Polls

The Tennessee Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that photo ID cards issued by the Memphis Public Library qualify as a valid form of identification in Tuesday’s election.

In a statement, state election officials said Memphis residents will be allowed to use library-issued IDs in next week’s election. The ruling applies only to voters within Shelby County.

“For 94 out of 95 Tennessee counties, today’s order from the court will have no impact,” State Election Coordinator Mark Goins said in a statement. “State- or federally-issued photo IDs are the only forms of identification that will be accepted.”

After Tuesday’s presidential election, the high court will take up the question of whether the state’s new voter ID law is constitutional.

Last week, a state appeals court upheld the state’s new voter ID law as constitutional. The court also found that IDs issued by Shelby County libraries qualify as government-issued identification.
