Grand Lake voters should defend their rights by voting

To the Editor:

The Grand Lake registered voters who have been investigated by the Town Clerk and are being made to sign an affidavit before receiving a ballot might find question

II.a. confusing.

“II.a. Have you resided in this municipality for thirty days immediately preceding this election?”

The Secretary of State’s Web site clarifies this question as follows: “(In other words, his/her primary place of abode was in this state and precinct during the entire thirty-day period….)” In other words, you didn’t have to be here all that time, as long as it was your established voting residence.

The voter should answer “Yes,” even if they were out of town during that period.

All of these voters should step up and defend their rights by voting in the September election.
