Voter Registration Application

Phoebe is a U.S. citizen and was born in New York. She is a college student at Emory University and had registered to vote in Georgia. She went to vote on November 6, 2018 at her polling place, but was told by a poll worker that they could not confirm that she was a U.S. citizen. At the time, Phoebe had three different forms of ID: her driver's license, her U.S. passport card, and her Emory University ID. She was forced to vote with a provisional ballot but was not provided with a receipt nor told that she needed to follow up on the ballot and her vote was not counted.
