Referendum petition irony

August 10, 2011

Regarding your report about Casa de Maryland and the ACLU's effort to block a referendum on in-state tuition for noncitizens ("Vote on tuition bill faces lawsuit," Aug. 2):

I have been watching the letters to the editors expecting to see someone point out the irony in the efforts of these groups, who are contesting the petition signatures on narrow legal grounds.

Yet they are the same people that insist anyone can come into a polling place and vote, even if they are not registered and present no identification.

Is participation in the political process only contingent on the issue at hand?
