The Division of Motor Vehicles began retraining hundreds of workers Tuesday as more instances came to light of state officials providing incomplete or inaccurate information about the ability of people to get IDs for voting. “We still have plenty of time to right any wrongs that may have occurred,” DMV Administrator Kristina Boardman told reporters. She made her comments just hours before groups suing the state asked a federal judge to suspend or soften the voter ID law for the Nov. 8 election. In court filings, the groups cited instances of voters not receiving IDs or being told wrong information about whether they could get them. “Taken together, this evidence makes clear that the state does not have — and is incapable of implementing — a functioning safety net for its strict voter ID law,” attorney Joshua Kaul wrote.
In response to reports in recent days about incorrect information being given out, the DMV announced Tuesday nearly 400 DMV workers would participate in online training and meet one-on-one with supervisors by Friday.
That’s the same day the DMV must report to a federal judge on what happened in a Sept. 22 incident in which a man who didn’t have a birth certificate was given wrong information by three DMV workers about whether he could get an ID for voting.
