In 2018, Kansas officials moved Dodge City’s last polling place to outside the city limits, “far away from public transportation,” then sent mailers to new voters wrongly telling them they were allowed to vote in the old location, TCAP says. In Florida, meanwhile, officials mystifyingly moved a polling place from Deerfield Beach to a private, gated community. “Voters who were assigned to vote at the polling place but resided outside of the gated area complained that they were unable to access the polling place because the community’s private security guard stopped them for failing to present ID.” Make sure you know where your voting place is well in advance (and that you can get to it).

I was educated in Catholic schools and spent 6 years at the Petit Seminaire College Saint-Martial, a Jesuit seminary. I am a twice Ordained minister from the Open Ministry Church, and the Universal Life Church The Monastery. I am not religious or an atheist, I enjoy spirituality. Religion, politics and gardening (not necessarily in that order) are my favorite subjects of conversation. Other areas of interest include: Human diversity, criminal and constitutional law (graduated from the police academy CCJST), Africa, ancient history, slavery, automotive technology and research at the GM training Center (Tech I and III), Chrysler Technical Training (BE and T-121).
