Vouching is the election day practice of one registered voter vouching for the identity and residence of another unregistered voter wishing to obtain a ballot. All voters must prove their identity before they can vote. Vouching is the one way that people who don’t have any of the approved pieces of identification can prove their identity. They swear an oath and have another eligible voter vouch for their identity.
