There was discussion at tonight's ( Mon 5/7/12 ) meeting regarding voter ID law in Michigan and the use of term "provisional ballot".
This is the exact language from the Michigan Secretary of State website.
"Once you sign the affidavit, you may cast your ballot. It will be counted with all other ballots on Election Day."
This four page PDF document details how a "provisional" or envelope ballot is only used in one of three possible lack of acceptable identification scenarios.
I'm looking for the actual training material provided to local clerks. More to follow - STAY TUNED !
