If You’re 91 And Can’t Stand, Forget About Voting In TN
Virginia Lasater, 91, is physically unable to stand in a long line at the DMV, and so she can’t get her voter ID card.
Lasater told The Daily News Journal that she has voted and worked in campaigns for 70 years. She recently moved to Murfreesboro and on Wednesday registered to vote at the local election commission.
A new law requires voters to show a photo ID at the polls. Since Lasater doesn’t have a photo on her driver’s license, she went to get one. But the testing center was packed and there were no chairs available.
Her son says a clerk told them there was nothing they could do.
Democratic leaders announced this week that they’ve filed legislation to repeal the new law.Click here for reuse options!
