Showing I.D. to vote

KELLY LEYDIG

Okay, here we go again with another big election coming up and, when you go to vote, you do not have to show proof of residency.

You have to show I.D. to get alcohol, cigarettes, cash a check and use your credit card, but to vote, well, that is a big inconvenience.

Now with all that being said, please explain to me why is it that, when I went to renew my driver’s license for the tenth time in my life – I have been driving for over 40 years – I had to show a copy of my birth certificate? That’s right, I had to prove my residency when I have been driving in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for over 40 years.

Now if I had a license and came to renew it, why oh why do I have to prove my residency. Am I the only one who sees a problem here? Wake up people, it is time to take charge and elect people with common sense and who are not part of the establishment. Good Luck and God Bless

(Editor’s Note:?New Pa law requires only first time voters to show a valid form of I.D., according to the Clinton County Voter Registrar.)
