The word “valid” does NOT connote “expired!” It’s apparent that the original language suggests this contradiction is indeed “valid” and the author, editor, and approval authority should be admonished. It is suspect as to the motivation for the clarification at this time when so many jurisdictions throughout the country are engaged in obvious deceitful and scheming tactics for biased political impact. It’s sad and shameful that our great state should become engaged in these exploits. Do our politicians and associated staff really think the public cannot comprehend what’s going on. The intent is to verify the voter’s identity, not anything else. We need to KEEP IT SIMPLE!
