I am an 82-year-old great-grandmother who went to vote Saturday at Watauga City Hall.

I had my voter card and Texas drivers license with picture ID. I was not allowed to vote because my Texas drivers license had my maiden name as my middle name. My voter name and address was on both IDs. With these two IDs, I refused to sign an affidavit that I am who I claim to be.

I left without voting.

Enough is enough. Republicans need to fix this problem using common sense.
