VOTERS: League story raises questions

| April 9, 2010 10:00 PM

I read the March 30 article “Women voters seek veto” with interest and concern. It quotes League of Women Voters V.P. Bonnie Douglas speaking for the League Of Women Voters in regard to the bill requiring photo I.D. when voting in Idaho. In reference to the issue, I say it’s about time.

However, I found it incredible that the League Of Women Voters would have an opinion on this issue at this time in Idaho, with its 150,000 plus members across the 50 states, and all the U.S. possessions. Checking the Web site for the local chapter of the League, I found that Ms. Douglas is a member of this chapter (membership 33). Obviously, she does not speak for the League Of Women Voters beyond the small group in the local chapter, as was implied by the article.


Coeur d’Alene

Editor’s note: The article was not clear in identifying Ms. Douglas as vice president of the League’s local branch. This was the fault of The Press, not Ms. Douglas.
