A co-worker of mine tried to vote yesterday, but was turned away by a poll worker. She never thought to change her name (or address) on her voter registration after she got married. I urged her to go anyway & ask for a provisional ballet, but she forgot what it was called & didn't ask for one.
Question -- are poll workers not required to offer someone a provisional ballet if there is a discrepancy between the name/address on their ID and the name/address on their voter registration or is it up to the voter to know to request one? I volunteered as a poll worker about 10 years ago, and I could swear we were told to offer someone a provisional ballet versus turning them away.
Edit: meant to add that this was in Duval County if that makes any difference.
