Time to get honest about voter ID laws

by Dianne Herrin

It’s time to get honest about voter ID laws. The “voter fraud” mythology* is a movement supported by Republican politicians who are grabbing for power at any/all costs and by Tea Party fanatics who are (yes I’m unafraid to say it) racist. This is a very bad combination, and your vote on Nov 6 can show that you are a good person who believes in our right to have a voice in our representative democracy.

Participate and vote for what is right, and remember that many Americans before us have fought so hard to secure these rights. This is what makes our country strong and great. Please – Believe in our American ideals!
