I was encouraged to read the Aug. 8 article Sharpton calls for getting ‘soul to polls.’ Rev. Sharpton’s speech at the New Birth Baptist Church Cathedral in Opa-locka, “encouraging black voters to register, get the proper ID and cast their ballots” was a responsible, courageous and upfront statement made by a well-respected leader of the African-American community.
I am suspicious of those who oppose having to show ID when casting a ballot. Congratulations to Sharpton for leading down the righteous, responsible and honest path.
