This created a brief issue for me at the polls once.The photograph on the ID is compared to the person standing before the Election Day Worker and the signature on the ID is compared to the signature on record.If the voter’s picture ID does not contain a signature, an additional document with signature may be used.
First, the notion of poll workers being "handwriting experts" is laughable on its face. Utterly ABSURD.
The signature on my license is OLD. Really old. At least a decade or more? Because I sign my name many times a day (at work), my signature has evolved since then... it's more and more illegible... about the only readable letter is the first letter followed by what has become more of a running line. :grin
So, my signature did not match the one on the license. I explained why. She didn't care. So, I said, "Give me my license, and I'll copy the signature." She did, and so I did exactly that. STUPID. Proves NOTHING. But, she was an unthinking cog in the wheel who robotically follows orders.
