No ID needed to vote in New Hampshire

In New Hampshire, the procedure for voting remains unchanged.

Although the state legislature passed a bill requiring photo ID at the polls, Gov. John Lynch vetoed the measure, saying the regulation might result in people who are qualified to vote to be turned away for lack of proper ID.

    It has been my understanding that this practice is fairly common in most states. If there is doubt about identity you may use a provisional ballot which gives you more time to get an ID.

    I have never had to show an ID at my polling place. My signature is on file and I sign right under it when I go to vote.

    I have a question. What about those who vote absentee ballots? To whom do THEY show picture IDs
