Elections work for the disabled


As advocates for people with disabilities we closely followed the stories about the complaint that was filed in Crow Wing County alleging voter assistance fraud and exploitation of voters with disabilities.  We are pleased that the county attorney took these matters seriously and conducted a thorough investigation. The results of the investigation confirm what we have known for some time: the election system in Minnesota works for people with disabilities.

After graduating high school in 2004, I attended Central Lakes College in Staples, MN for 2 years where I got a diploma in Communication Art and Design. I then transfered up to Bemidji State University in, you guessed it, Bemidji, MN. In the spring of 2009, I graduated from BSU. Then in the fall of 2009 I got a job at Echo Publishing, a sister company to the Brainerd Dispatch.
