Utah New ID Check-In

Utah is creating a new cool check in process for voters. The State’s voter registration data base will be able to read the bar codes on a voter’s driver’s license. So when a voter goes to check in to vote, a poll worker will be able to scan the bar code on the back of the State driver’s license and that person will be pulled up in the state database. The voter will be authenticated on a laptop in the polling place, credited with voting, and will help with problems that often arise with poll workers having trouble hearing names, spelling names, and the like.
