I am not a resident of Macon County but my parents have owned a home there for almost 30 years. I do spend time there so I often read local news. I recently read a letter in your paper where someone took issue with having to have a valid ID in order to vote.
I cannot for the life of me understand why any adult citizen here legally in the United States, would have a problem with obtaining a valid, government issued form of ID. I don't care if they are 18 or 118 years old. Even a blind person can get a photo ID, even though they may not be able to see it, others will. I am sure at some point someone they know whether a parent, relative, caregiver, etc., would take them to get an ID. I also have no idea why they couldn't pay for it. Why should theirs be free, mine wasn't.
