Compare and contrast New Jersey and Florida voting protocols,
In Florida the information on your voter registration card and ID have to match, you are issued a 12″ printout (similar to a cash register receipt) showing your name, date of birth and address which you then must confirm, and that is placed on a clear plastic pocket on the outside of a folder. The paper ballots (2 pages printed on both sides) go in the inside of the folder, and the ballot number and voter number must in turn match the same number on the printout.
From there you are directed to the rooms with the voting booths. All the booths in the first room were occupied, so we were directed to the second room.
Once in your booth, you fill in the ballot in black ballpoint pen ink, and then head to another area with the machine. A worker explains how to enter the ballot into the machine, he removes the printout ticket, you again confirm the ballot and voter number, you feed the ballot into the slot, it enter the information electronically, you leave the empty folder in a bin, and you’re done.
