I just learned that, starting now, ID is required to vote in my town and my state.
I love to vote. Nothing makes me feel more patriotic than the entire process of voting. I love seeing candidates and supporters from my party holding signs on the corner of the parking lot. I also love seeing candidates and supporters from the other party on the other corner. I feel a solidarity with these dedicated citizens, standing out in the rain and cold (or like today in the gorgeous clear fall air) for their beliefs, no matter which corner they have picked.
I just love voting.
I can’t help wondering what problem we are solving with this new law. Is there a problem in New Hampshire with voter fraud? All I can think of is this clip, specifically the interview with Deirdre MacNab, from my most trusted source of news and information: Florida’s Voter Registration Law
Our law is different and much more mainstream, but I have the same questions.
