Disregard voter intimidation

P.O. Box 96 East Orleans, MA 02643 Sept. 23, 2004 508-255-5344

To the Editor:

Want the government you need? VOTE!

Register, or check that you’re registered, by the Oct. 4 deadline.

College students have a right to vote where they are registered, which may be where they go to school.

Disregard such possible voter intimidation tactics such as fliers warning that outstanding parking tickets and rentmust be cleared up, or giving the wrong election date, police questioning elderly African-American absentee voters, as happened in Orlando, aggressive poll watchers, which may violate the United States Constitution. Bring to the polls ID, preferably with a photo, just in case.
