Asked for photo ID at New Utrecht High School on Election Day

Vincent La Marca | On the morning of Election Day, Nov. 2, 2004, I was asked by an auxillary police officer for photo ID in order to enter the polling place at New Utrecht High School. I felt this was a violation of privacy and inconsistent with Board of Election policy. I believe that IDs should be propery handled by poll workers.
