No voter I.D.

My 97 year old father-in-law, who is a decorated World War II veteran, is in a

nursing home. He is relatively immobile since he has difficulty walking,


but his mind is sharp.

He is very politically astute; he knows who he is going

to vote for and why. Because he doesn’t have a driver’s license or another

form of government I.D., and would have difficulty getting one, he would not be

able to vote in Minnesota if the voter I.D. ammendment passes.

Don’t prevent people like my father-in-law from voting. VOTE NO.

I've worked at the Brainerd Dispatch with various duties since Dec. 7, 1983. Starting off as an Ad Designer and currently Director of Audience Development. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work. I'm fortunate to have made many friends, both co-workers and customers.
