And this one

And this one:

Now, I do not believe this was intentional, but rather resulted from the complicated process the government has yet to clarify on the ground level. She kept telling me I would need a form signed by a shelter if I wanted a free ID, assuming I was asking on behalf of people in a homeless shelter. Finally, once I mentioned that there are many people like me that qualify for a free ID under the new voting law that do not live in shelters, the worker admitted that the process was unclear to her as to handling requests.

Keep them coming, Jake

No matter what happens in WS this week, there will be trial next year. People need to understand the pervasive incompetence of the current administration - and how that incompetence is already unraveling the fabric of our democracy.

I see the problem

Young females, one of whom is African-American, trying to get IDs to vote. That's precisely what the law was intended to prevent!

Democracy Summer interns

are a fantastic group of young people, and I think we'll be hearing more from them going down the road.

This is the kind of citizen journalism that can have an impact on public policy. While the mainstream media gets a large percentage of their information from department heads or their spokesbots, going directly to the point-of-service like Evelyn did exposes issues that regular folks would have to deal with. In other words, more relevant information than what's in the paper or on the news.
