To the Editor and Readers,
I am writing as a result of a second attempt by mail to register my 16-year-old daughter to vote.
I threw away the first mailing, giving the sender the benefit of the doubt that it was a mistake.
The second one arrived last week from the Voter Participation Center in Virginia. The founder of that organization is a Page S. Gardner, and the former name of that group was the Womens Voice Womens Vote.
When trying to contact the number on the website, it is no longer in service. The web page states over 4 million registrations have been sent out, my question being how many non-eligible registrations have been taken as a result?
This is unbelievable in a presidential race of such consequences in our history as a nation. Anyone believing that voter ID isn't a necessary step to be taken is just fooling themselves, especially when you need an ID to purchase tobacco, alcohol and to get into the Democratic National Convention.
We all should beware, and support our legislators in PA that are fighting valliantly for Voter ID. We need to be dilligent in protecting the right to vote in this country that so many have fought and died to preserve.
