Thomas Magnani: Right to vote

August 10, 2013 

Right to vote

His father’s VA benefits are a benefit of his service, not his constitutional right. The repeated request for ID is to reduce the chances of a medical mistake. While I thank the father for his service, his son does not seem to grasp what that service was for. Voting is his, and everyone’s, constitutional right.

Thomas Magnani, Cary
