Straight from the voters: 1-866-MyVote1

Common Cause's voter hotline, 1-866-MyVote1 is getting calls, a lot from PA, IN, OH. We also just finished a tele-conference with reporters. One, from Computer World, noted that he had problems on eSlate machines this morning in Lancaster County, PA. We're checking it out further. More to come.
Here's a report from our TX office:
Voters being told via newscast to bring their voter registration card and a photo ID. I called Matt (the CBS newscaster in Amarillo) and told him Texas law does not require a photo ID and a voter registration card. Seems the county clerks (Potter, Randall and God know how many more) sent a note to the news people to say this, "...to speed up the process."
Called Laurie Vanhoose (Advocacy Inc.) she e-mailed Ann McGeehan (SOS) office and I called the 1-866-MY-Vote-1 hotline to report that voters in the Panhandle are being given this misinformation via the news.."
