Voter suppression, the latest starring Mayor Dawn Zimmer
Hoboken’s mayor Dawn Zimmer confirms reports of poll workers incorrectly asking voters for identification.
Apparently, she has befallen this herself as she tweeted earlier:
I just got asked for ID to vote in my polling location at Boys & Girls Club. This is not ok Hudson County Board of Elections!

Talking Ed Note: The mayor of Hoboken was asked for identification to vote in her Mile Square hometown. This is utterly ridiculous!
Other reports say that poll workers at Brandt earlier this morning did the same. But another email report to MSV said they were there at the opening and although somewhat chaotic getting started no request for identification was made to voters.
Bottom line, that’s not the law in New Jersey but hey, we live in Hudson County.
