The Right to Vote

If your driver's license fees aren't paid up your license expires and you no longer enjoy the privilege to drive; it does not invalidate your right to vote.   

These additional regulations are unnecessary, ID voter fraud is almost nonexistent.  Using fraud as the reason behind these changes is disingenuous.  It only serves to alienate specific people;  say maybe the public transportation Green or the medicare denied Elderly.

As a citizen of the Commonwealth as well as an Election Officer I am extremely concerned by these attempts at voter suppression.

If Obenshain and others in his party need to resort to these tactics to win an election they probably shouldn't be running at all.
