Driver’s licenses for all, regardless of immigration status! It’s time! Support HF1500!
Elections - Get Involved!
When is the last time you used your driver’s license as an ID? For me, it was when I forgot my library card but wanted to check out the books that I had reserved. For you, perhaps it was when you checked in for a medical appointment, entered your child’s school or ordered a drink in a restaurant.
Approximately 82,000 residents of Minnesota are eligible for a driver’s license or state ID, but cannot get one because they are undocumented immigrants. Many have been living here for decades and were able to obtain a driver’s license until Governor Pawlenty changed the law in 2003. Imagine having your driving privileges and access to an ID stripped away. For undocumented immigrants, having access to a Driver’s License or State ID is both a matter of convenience and access and dignity to move around the state.
Why I Should Vote
Voting is key, but it’s not all there is to the election process. You can get involved in a lot of ways:
How To Vote in Minnesota
As citizens of the United States we are members of a Democracy, which by definition is a government For the People – By the People. Therefore, the rules that shape our lives are created by US…OR…by those who show up. In this country, even if you don’t physically vote…you are still voting for something.
