Will the inability to verify social security number or driver's license number prevent registration?

Voter may cast an ordinary ballot after showing ID at polls

Unmatched applicants must show ID at the polls. WA ADC 434-324-040. Applicants who do not show ID must cast a provisional ballot and return later with ID. However, to avoid this situation, local election officials must first attempt to verify the identity of the voter in other ways, including searching public records and contacting the applicant directly. WA ADC 434-324-045.
