Some counties previously offered that as part of a pilot program that has now been made permanent.

"We are actually glad to have them out there, 'cause they nearly always they tell us that we are doing a great job and that our poll workers are doing the right things out there", says Spikula.

If you don't have an ID, you can still cast a provisional ballot.
