Celebrating an ID!
Marian Cooley, a member of League of Women Voters of Muncie-Delaware County, accompanied Hoosier Joe Worley to the BMV on 30 November. The occasion was significant: After a two-year battle against obstacles such as court hearings, postponements, and name discrepancies on legal documents, Joe finally was able to get his driver's license. LWV sincerely hopes this milestone will assist both Joe's personal life and his participation as a citizen. Our thanks to attorney William Groth, who shepherded the legal process.
