Some of you will notice another change at the polls. Before voting for President, some Oklahomans will need to show their ID.

That's because of the federal Help America Vote Act that took effect in January. Any voters who registered by mail after January 1st must show an ID before voting in a federal election.

That law doesn't affect state or local elections.
