Voter ID options

Aspen Times writer

Dear Editor:(This is a response to the Aug. 13 letter from Silt voter Peggy Tibbetts.)I am an election judge for Eagle County. Before each election, we are required to go to a training session a week before the election. During the training session, we received a printout that listed the forms of identification we could accept if the voter did not have a picture ID. Some of these forms of identification are: A copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government paycheck, a Medicare or Medicaid card. What these documents have in common are the name of the registered voter and the physical address of the voter. We had a few voters who produced IDs other than a license and were allowed to vote regular ballots. These requirements are set at federal and state levels.Ms. Tibbetts, please contact the Clerk and Recorder for Garfield County or the Secretary of State with your concerns.Helen YanakiEagle County election judge
