     • Vote a provisional ballot if you registered by mail for the first time in             this county and did not provide identification when you registered or           do not have it with you today; If you provide a current address in this           county and valid photo ID, utility bill, bank statement, government               check, paycheck or other government document that shows your                 name and address, you may vote on the voting machine today;
