I appreciate this message and especially Sandy's (for having a chance to
witness, not just hear about).
As someone who marched for Civil Rights which was mostly voting rights at
the time, I am TWILIGHT ZONED at how far the pendulum has swung. I would
hope that Deb will be able to declare these applications for 'early voting'
by just anyone at all unethical if they are indeed not illegal. Better yet,
I would like to see several elder statesmen/women who are perceived as
beyond partisan join together to condemn it and further have those who are
responsible for approving these actions publically apologize.
Good grief! Miki, Townshend Treasurer
