"There is nothing I can do. I missed the deadline and I cannot vote. What I can't understand is why my certificate was held even though it had the Governor's signature, approving my right to vote. All so three people could sign who don't even decide. I've been fighting this over two years and I still can't vote."Martha, Florida
Latasha Carnegie discovered that none of her identification documents met Texas’ new voter ID requirement when she tried to vote. She had a student ID and an expired driver’s license, but neither of these documents is accepted under the Texas law.
Before she went to vote, Larissa double-checked the ID requirement online to make sure she had acceptable ID. It was only then that she found out that she needed a Texas driver’s license and her California driver’s license would not work.

" -- Sharon S., Norcross, Georgia
"Ensuring that our votes counted was a multi-step, days-long process. My daughter and I placed multiple calls to officials and the matter was resolved only after a meeting at the elections office.

"The county clerk said, 'Sorry Charlie, can't help you.' This is horrible. It makes my blood boil a little. We're a Native American reservation, that's another reason. I've been out there on the Internet, trying to get my story out." -- Edmund, Dresslerville Reservation, Nevada
