Election office workers hit Hurley’s Supermarket Saturday in their drive to sign up voters for new voter identification cards.
The election office’s Eldon Whittaker said about 60 people had taken time to get new voter ID’s Saturday at both Hurley’s and the Election Office’s Kirk House location.
Election office workers are also visiting government offices, private businesses and churches in an effort to issue new ID cards to voters.
To get a new card, voters must bring a photo ID, such as a driver’s license or passport.
Prior voter ID cards are now obsolete and should be returned and exchanged.
Although elector cards are neither required for the coming referendum, nor to vote, they are designed to make the process smother.
ID cards will be issued periodically at other locations throughout May 2009.
