Today, Feb. 9, 2021, I voted at Austin City Hall in the special primary election for Mower Country Commissioner. When I pulled out my wallet to show them a photo ID (my Minnesota driver’s license) they said that I didn’t need to show any ID. They asked my name and address, and because I am a registered voter, they permitted me to vote.

The reason I am writing this letter is that I don’t like the way that the government officials are running our nation. I firmly believe that only legal citizens should vote in America and that everyone should have to show a Photo Voter ID.
