SYSTEMIC RACISM, CRITICAL RACE THEORY AND CAMPAIGN HOME ROOM

Our country is in trouble, serious trouble and moving in exactly the wrong direction. The kids are our future and what they learn today will define the future of America.

Think of the Voter ID Card as a picture ID (like your driver’s license) with a “swipe” capability (like your credit card) that will display on a screen all of the voter’s personal data as well as the dates the Voter ID Card has been “used” during the current election cycle. The intent of the Voter ID Card Law is to positively identify a voter at a voting site with a current photo, a valid state Voter ID number, current address and a history of voter activity.  Everyone who desires to vote must have a Voter ID Card in order to perform in-person voting or to apply for an absentee ballot.
