Future of local Veterans Day parade at stake MARC BUCKHOUT MANAGING EDITOR

Marc Buckhout/The Foothills Focus

The 7th annual Daisy Mountain Veterans Day Parade in Anthem drew approximately 7,000 people last year. This year organizers are concerned they might have to cancel the parade due to a lack of financial backing. Organizers need $15,000 to offset costs for the parade.

History is used in a lot of different ways. It’s a teacher. It’s a barometer to make comparisons. It’s a tool to see where we as a people have come from and to honor those that have made that growth possible. With Veterans Day, Nov. 11, approximately six weeks away the Daisy Mountain Veterans have examined a historical aberration and announced that the fate of the annual Daisy Mountain Veterans Day Parade, held in Anthem, is in jeopardy.

“It’s dire straits,” event organizer Mary Ann Derryberry, a Marine Corps veteran said. “We had a parade meeting on (Sept. 19) and the money just isn’t coming in. We’ve made the decision to make it public, to sound the alarm. We’ve never had a year like this.” At this time a year ago Derryberry said more than $10,000 in sponsorship money had been collected. As of last week sponsorship money toward this year’s event was

North Valley trails tie into Valley-wide system MARC BUCKHOUT MANAGING EDITOR

During the state’s centennial year, one that saw the 800plus mile Arizona Trail, which stretches from the Mexican border north to Utah, the Maricopa Regional Trail has reached the halfway mark in efforts to link the county’s ten parks. What ultimately will be 421 miles of trails, will link park systems as far west as Hassayampa and the White Tanks in the West Valley, the San Tan Mountain Regional Park in Gilbert in the East Valley, South Mountain in the South Valley and then a series of local trails here in the North

Ranch in New River, which was dedicated in April of 2011, as well as trails through Anthem. “This project will be a great legacy for our children and our children’s children,” commented Supervisor Andy Kunasek, who served on the Trail Commission for several years and guided its master plan. “I see this project   as a ‘Pathway to the Parks,’ where you can experience the desert from the San Tan Mountains to the McDowell’s and Lake Pleasant to White Tank and South Mountains.” The trail, which will link the county’s ten parks and provide miles of hiking, mountain biking

From there a private contractor builds fourfeet wide trails through the desert terrain. An additional 59 miles will be constructed by July 2013, mostly in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve and Tonto National Forest. The funds come from the county’s general fund, with an estimated $2.3 million remaining for the next four fiscal years. Chris Coover, the Maricopa

parade from page 1 sitting at less than $3,000. “I had one of our big sponsors from the last couple years write me the nicest email, but basically say the economy is so tough that instead of being a sponsor at the $1,000 level they’d only be able to come up with $250,” Derryberry said. “Some that have been faithful sponsors in the past have just pulled out all together.” Coming up on the 8th annual event Derryberry said she’s at a loss to understand this year’s struggles. “We’ve proven ourselves as a quality parade,” she said. “And it isn’t even just the parade. Very few communities have the festivities following the parade like we do. It’s a free afternoon in the park where you can make it a whole day with your family and friends.” Derryberry said the goal each year is to reach $15,000 in sponsorship to offset

the cost of the parade. She points out that the event is made viable by the donated time of more than 100 volunteers. An event that drew some 7,000 people last year has not only seen sponsors slow to support this year’s edition, but the number of entries looking to walk in the parade are also down significantly from the 1,800 that participated in 2011. Still Derryberry is confident that if the financial backing is in place there will be another memorable parade with two prisoners of war participating including a World War II veteran and one from Vietnam. For the first time the U.S. Marine Corps Mounted Color Guard, which has led the Rose Bowl in years past, will participate. “We treat everybody with the utmost respect,” she said. “It’s a well-run parade. You don’t find other ones that have announcers all along the parade route

The Foothills Focus to let the people know who is coming by.” To try and get more people involved in the parade, in one fashion or another, Derryberry has pushed back the deadline from Monday to Oct. 15. Parade sponsorships range in price from $100 on up to $5,000. When asked about the possibility of having to cancel the parade Derryberry’s emotions came to the surface. “I think it would be a damn shame,” she said. “With where the moral is in our country I think we need this. We are losing our returning soldiers to suicide at an alarming rate. We have a large number of homeless veterans, which is just sick. Our veterans need this. Not just the old ones, but the young ones too.” For information on the Daisy Mountain Veterans Parade go to daisymtnvets.org or email daisymtnvetsparade@cox.net.

Cave Creek Museum preps for season opener STAFF REPORT

Thousands of museums across the country will participate in the free national Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day on Saturday including the Cave Creek Museum. Cave Creek’s participation in the event will stand out as more than a chance for the public to preview exhibits prior to its official season opening on Oct. 3. That’s because this year’s event will feature guests from the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community who will conduct demonstrations and help the Museum educate guests about their culture and history which dates back to the ancient Hohokam as part of the Museum’s new archaeology exhibit. The first 100 visitors to the Museum will receive a special gift to celebrate the event. “We are deeply honored to host this special event and to receive the support of the Salt River Indian Community,” said Evelyn Johnson, Cave Creek Museum’s executive director. “Our team of archaeology volunteers has been working to create a new exhibit ever since they visited the Huhugam Ki Museum at the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community in 2011.” Cave Creek Museum credits tribal members for helping them conceptualize and build the new archaeology exhibit, which consists of an introductory panel, a time line, and sections devoted to traditional structures (including models), food processing and preparation, and clothing. Included in the clothing is a hand-beaded Maricopa cape. “Several people were instrumental in guiding us, including Huhugam Ki Museum director Gary Owens and Steve Hoza who loaned us pottery from his personal collection,” said Sue Mueller, committee member and Museum Board member. “It has been a true collaborative effort and we’re very excited to unveil the exhibit to the public.” Along with Mueller, the

Boulder Creek senior corner Ryan McKinley breaks on a pass to Sandra Day O’Connor’s Austin Cottrell. McKinley intercepted the pass, one of five turnovers forced by the Jaguars defense in a 17-3 win. To view more photos from Friday’s game go to facebook.com/thefoothills.focus. MARC BUCKHOUT MANAGING EDITOR

Just as they were a season ago the Boulder Creek Jaguars have arrived at the midpoint of the season with a 4-1 record. A week after a shutout win over St. Mary’s the Jaguars got another stellar defensive effort in a 17-3 win over rival Sandra Day O’Connor. As they prepare to host Mountain Ridge (2-3) at 7 p.m., Friday coach Dan Friedman is well aware that last year’s matchup with the Mountain Lions was a turning point for his 2011 squad. A 10-7 loss to the Mountain Lions started a slide that saw the Jaguars drop four of their final six games of the season. “It’s always a physical game with them,” Friedman said. “Last year they slowed the game down. They sustained longdrives that kept our offense off the field. So far this year our defense is making it hard for teams to sustain long drives.” After giving up a 12-play scoring drive that covered 68 yards on the Eagles opening possession, the Jaguars defense wreaked havoc with the Eagles the remainder of the game, by forcing five turnovers over the game’s final three quarters.

“We spend time at practice working on creating turnovers every week,” coach Dan Friedman said. “If the defense doesn’t create three turnovers they have to run at the end of practice.” Junior safety Braden Reber led the way defensively with a forced fumble, fumble recovery and an interception. In the second quarter, with the Jaguars holding a 7-3 lead, Eagles quarterback Jared Melson lofted a deep pass down the middle of the field to junior Austin Cottrell. Cottrell hauled in the apparent big-gain, which would have set Sandra Day up with a first down inside the Jaguars 20 yard-line. Instead, Reber caught up to Cottrell, stripped the ball from the wide receiver’s hands and then picked up the fumbled ball and returned it up field. The defensive struggle remained 7-3 late into the third quarter. With their offense unable to mount much of an attack against the Jaguars defense, Sandra Day O’Connor tried a high-risk fake punt from deep in their own territory. On 4th-and-4 from their own 16 yard-line the Eagles elected to snap the ball directly to their upback rather than punt the ball away.

The Jaguars weren’t fooled though, stopping the Eagles at their own 14-yardline. Instead of making the Eagles pay for their risky play call the Jaguars eventually settled for a 24-yard field goal from Dom Perna. Despite having a 1stand-goal from the 1-yardline the Jaguars could only push the lead to 10-3 as two runs lost five yards and then Trevor Miller’s throw to the corner of the end zone saw senior Isaiah Huston go high in the air, catch the ball while nearly horizontal, before having the ball come loose when he hit the ground. While the offense wasn’t able to put the game out of reach, the defense took it upon itself to seal the win. With approximately 7 minutes remaining in the game, Melson, from the Eagles own 38 yard-line, went back to pass. Reber responded with the play of the night, stepping in front of the pass near the Jaguars sideline and then returning the interception 45-yards for a touchdown to make the score 17-7. “I was just playing my position and I read the play right,” Reber said. “When I caught it I saw the end zone and thought I could get there.”

trails from page 1 Trail manager said the area between Spur Cross and Usery Mountain Regional Park at the western end of the Goldfield Mountains in the East Valley will be an area of emphasis in the coming year. “We’ve got agreements with Tonto National Forest on the Northeast side of the McDowell Mountain Preserve and then from there we’ll go south to Usery. If we’re lucky we’ll have those three parks connected a year from now,” he said. While 2020 was originally the target goal to finish the Maricopa Trail, Coover said six years into the build 2018 might be a better estimated completion date. “It’s pretty ambitious, but we’re on schedule,” he said. In describing the genesis of the project, Coover said Maricopa County officials, in the Eye to the Future 2020 plan, laid out a vision to give residents a chance to be healthier through the enjoyment of recreation. “We have these great regional parks, but there weren’t any connections between the parks,” Coover said. “The effort is a real tribute to the parks department,” Kunasek said. The trail system eventually will build out to 1521 miles

CAVE CREEK Trail addition CONSIDERED The Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department is currently considering the addition of a connector trail from Cave Creek Regional Park’s Quartz Trail to the Desert Foothills Land Trust trail system. To establish the level of interest from the community for the connector trail, the department is soliciting feedback from park visitors through a brief online survey which has been posted at maricopa.gov/parks/cave_creek/Maps.aspx. A survey can also be obtained by calling Leigh at 602-506-8941 or leighjohnson@mail. maricopa.gov. Surveys will be accepted until 5 p.m. on Oct. 22. Once the process has been completed, feedback will be reviewed and a decision on the project will be posted on the department’s website. Cave Creek Regional Park is located at 37900 N. Cave Creek Parkway in Cave Creek. across the county land area. The effort has required cooperative agreements with Phoenix, Scottsdale, Peoria, Cave Creek and Guadalupe, the Tonto National Forest, the Maricopa County Flood Control District and Salt River Project. “This has been a complicated, laborious process to assemble and build and to be on schedule is quite an accomplishment,” Kunasek said, crediting the Maricopa County Parks Department Director R.J. Cardin and his staff as well as other cooperating agencies. It will provide challenging, longer trails for competitive hikers and mountain bikers seeking back-country

experiences outside the urbanized park systems. The trails between Cave Creek and Lake Pleasant are already being used for hikers training to cross the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim. Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department Director R.J. Cardin encourages the community to get involved with the trails, explaining that the parks department cannot maintain the trail system with just its own maintenance funds. “We are seeking volunteers from both the community and local businesses who can donate time and other resources to help maintain the trails,” Cardin said. Maps for the completed segments of the Maricopa Regional Trail system can be found at maricopa. gov/parks/MaricopaTrail/.

defense from page 6 After giving up just three points in their last eight quarters of play and allowing an average of only eight points per game in their four wins, Reber said the key to the defense’s success has been pretty simple. “Our defense is really playing like a team,” he said. “We have incredible coaching. They put us in good position to be successful.” Offensively the Jaguars weren’t spectacular, but didn’t turn the ball over and had enough of a balance to keep the Eagles guessing. Junior quarterback Trevor Miller spread the wealth, hitting six different receivers, during a 17 – for – 26 passing performance for 139 yards. Huston led the way with seven catches for 48 yards. A limited ground attack was led by senior Stephen Landeros, who rushed for 50 yards on 15 carries, including a 1-yard touchdown run.

CACTUS SHADOWS In a game that saw 112 points scored the Falcons fell to the Badgers in Prescott 63-49 on Friday. The defensive woes continue for Cactus Shadows (1-4), which has given up an average of 49 points per game in their four losses.

GiZmos

The team’s running defense continues to be their biggest problem as Badgers senior Brady Mengarelli rushed for an unheard of 419 yards on 30 carries, nearly 14 yards per effort. Offensively the Falcons did their best to give themselves a shot to win as senior quarterback Bryce Kinsler threw for an astronomical 639 yards, completing 37 – of - 60 passes including five touchdowns against two interceptions. Senior Matt Hartlen was Kinsler’s favorite target, catching 15 passes for 222 yards, while fellow senior Kyle Gladstone wasn’t far behind, with 13 receptions for 271 yards. The receiving duo combined for five touchdown receptions with Gladstone hauling in three. Despite their current struggles the Falcons figure to have a strong chance to win next week when they travel to Phoenix to take on Goldwater. After winning their opener against Shadow Mountain the Bulldogs (1-4) have dropped their last four games, losing by an average of 27 points per contest. Games start at 7 p.m.

Land trust seeks volunteers STAFF REPORT

The Desert Foothills Land Trust is looking for North Valley community members interested in becoming involved in protecting the landscape they love through volunteer activity. The organization is hosting a volunteer orientation session, which will provide an overview for those considering volunteering from 6 – 7 p.m., Oct. 4 at the Carefree office. Desert Foothills Land Trust representatives will share information about the organization and their volunteer opportunities, including assistance with special events and office activities, as well as workdays on preserved lands.  Executive Director Sonia Perillo said, “Volunteers are crucial to the Land Trust’s work. This is a great opportunity for folks to participate directly in land conservation.” Additionally, for those particularly interested in land stewardship and management activities, the Land Trust is offering six indepth Steward and Docent Training classes, which will cover natural history, geology, invasive species and other topics related to preserve management and land conservation activities.  Stewards and Docents must complete all six courses, plus the volunteer orientation session.  Upon completion of the training, Stewards and Docents have the opportunity to adopt a preserve to assist the Land Trust with

monitoring and management activities, leading guided hikes and providing preserve visitors with information.  Steward and Docent Training takes place from 9 a.m. – noon every Thursday from Oct. 11 through Nov. 15. Space is limited and reservations are required. Thos interested in participating are asked to RSVP by Oct. 8 to Vicki Domonkos at 480-488-6131 or vdomonkos@dflt.org.

Protection from the latest internet security threat SUBMITTED ARTICLE

For the most part computers have been mainly under attack from worms and viruses. The primary goal of these malicious programs was to spread; however, in some cases these programs were designed to cause damage to files and hardware. This type of “malware” is commonly referred to as ‘cyber vandalism’. In most cases, the goal of worms and viruses is to spread as far as possible, fame and high praise by the cybercriminal’s peers and hacking community being the ultimate goal. Currently, the most critical threat faced by computer users is crimeware. This new breed of malware is developed by cybercriminals with the sole purpose of stealing your money. These programs can be in the form of viruses, worms, trojans and other malicious programs. Some are used to log your keystrokes as you type (keyloggers), some capture screenshots when you are using banking websites and others let a remote hacker access your system. What they all have in common is the ability to steal your confidential information such as passwords and account numbers. Equipped with this

information, the cybercriminal is then able to steal your money. Here are a few steps you can take to protect yourself. • Defend your computer by installing quality Internet Security Software. • Stay current on security patches for your operating system and applications. If you use Microsoft Windows make sure Automatic Updates are turned on. • Update your security software regularly, at least once a day. • Keep your other applications updated regularly; check the vendor’s websites for updates. • Backup your critical data regularly to a CD, DVD, external USB, or network drive. • If you receive an email with an attached file (Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, .EXE files, etc.) don’t open it unless you know who sent it and only then if you’re expecting it. Never open an attachment sent in an unsolicited email.

pet of the week

Roxy

Hello my name is Roxy and I am your typical 7.5 y/o lab who loves chasing balls, eating treats and nudging you for pets. I have been settling in with my new foster home and I kinda like my foster sister and the sneaky little feline who also lives here. I really, really love attention and I am learning that sometimes some attention needs to be given to the other dog and cat as well. My foster mom says I need to practice some of my basic manners but since I am such a “people pleaser” that it shouldn’t take me long at all. I am learning how to walk politely on a leash though it can be tough as I really like walking and my foster family tells me it will help me lose some weight. I don’t like my crate much so it is a good thing I can be trusted to be left loose in the house. So if you are looking for a companion who will stay by your side, give you tons of love and attention I am your girl.

If you would like more information on Roxy or other dogs in need of loving homes, please contact Arizona Labrador & Giant Breed Rescue at azlabsandgiants.org. The adoption fees cover the cost of spay/neuter, basic vet check, heartworm test, microchip, 5 in 1 vaccination, and Rabies and Bordatella vaccinations. The group is also desperately in need of volunteers, especially foster homes. For information on being a volunteer go to azlabsandgiants.org. Specializing in

movie review

No reason for dread with Dredd 3D MONTE YAZZIE SPECIAL FOR THE FOOTHILLS FOCUS

The comic series 2000 AD, which features the stoic, justice wielding Judge Dredd, has been around since the late 1970s. The comic spawned the 1995 feature starring Sylvester Stallone, which was marred by unnecessary comic relief and a forced love interest. Dredd 3D simplifies the character of Dredd in the best ways, while focusing on making a well executed, action-packed comic adaptation that will have you wondering where this Judge has been hiding. Mega-City One is the future; it’s a vast, decaying city that finds humanity living in 200-floor community structures. Crime is rampant and run by gangs fighting to gain any footing in the communities. Drugs are commonplace, specifically the new street drug called Slo-mo that is being manufactured by crime queen Ma-Ma (Lena Headey). Justice has been deputized to Street Judges, highly trained law enforcers who carry multi-arsenal handguns. Their purpose is simply an all-in-one judge, jury, and executioner. The toughest of these judges is Dredd (Karl Urban). With a stern, law above anything else mentality, Dredd is a

formidable force of power and influence. These characteristics make him a perfect choice to conduct a field assessment exam for recruit Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), a young woman who doesn’t quite meet par on paper but has other valuable skills.

DREDD 3D

Dir: Pete Travis Starring: Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby, and Lena Headey 3.5 out of 5.00 Their first assignment has them investigating a triple homicide in one of Mega-City One’s most dangerous complexes, which just happens to be inhabited by Ma-Ma’s entire gang. Character is a big part of this films success. Urban’s role as Dredd doesn’t require much, but he makes the most of every scene. His tough demeanor, rigid posture, and near monotone delivery is structured throughout. This allows Urban to remain threatening yet permits moments of comic brevity, a nice touch. Lena Headey is also good as MaMa in the same reserved way as Dredd; her serenely sadistic delivery allows for some nice verbal abuse. Olivia Thirlby shoulders the weight of the drama, and unfortunately it’s

met with mixed results. At times her portrayal is used nicely to accompany Dredd’s deadpan style, but other times, specifically during moments of action, it’s forced and unnatural. The narrative isn’t great, but it doesn’t pretend to be. It’s understood that Dredd 3D is first an action film, and it doesn’t disappoint on that end. Ultimately what will hurt the story is the fact that it’s too similar to The Raid, one of the best action films I’ve seen in a long time. However, there are some really ingenious aspects that the film implements too, most notably the use of slow motion capture actions scenes; graphic, vicious, and undeniably cool. The composition of the grim and grey outside world reflects the turmoil inside the apartment complex. This environment seems like a limitation of space in an action film, but it actually takes on a life of its’ own and becomes an interesting atmosphere for conflict. The fact that Dredd doesn’t take his helmet off once proves that the filmmakers wanted to remain authentic to the source material and create a film that fans of the iconic Judge would love. To that extent Dredd 3D has exceeded expectation, but it’s also a fun film that’s easy to get lost in too.

opinions and letters

Consistency is paramount in court

S h e seemed upset and a little conf used as she walked up to the WILLIAMS judge’s bench in the courtroom. Through an interpreter, she asked me to dismiss the order of protection she had in place against a man who had assaulted her because she had nobody else to watch her children. She said he had been attending church and that she wanted to forgive him. I tried, perhaps unsuccessfully, to explain that the Christian concept of forgiveness was not the same as tolerating abusive behavior. Sometimes, there are no good options. Eviction cases also provide weekly examples of similar but different sets of problems. My court hears residential eviction cases every Monday

and Wednesday afternoon. Frequently, the tenants are nice people who can no longer honor their lease due to a job loss, a major medical bill, or both. Sometimes they come to court mad that their landlord because he is no longer willing to work with them. After I explain that state law does not authorize me to give them additional time to pay their rent, frequently their anger flips and becomes focused on me. The reality that I am an elected judge also comes into play because uniformly enforcing standards is generally unpopular with individuals going through the court system, the majority of which are potential voters. By way of example, I have developed a set of general rules for how I handle recurring fact patterns. However, to the individual citizen, their case is not a recurring fact pattern. In fact, it may be the only time in their life that they come to court. If I just dismissed everyone’s

Voters going through foreclosures face confusion Today, the Fair Elections Legal Network released a report “Lose Your Home, Keep Your Vote: How to Protect Voters Caught Up in Foreclosure.” The report highlights the confusion victims of foreclosure may face when determining how they can cast a ballot this November and lays out practical answers for election officials and voters on how to protect their right to vote. Along with the report, FELN has released a guide on where Arizona voters can vote depending on where they are in the foreclosure process. Foreclosures are still plaguing many communities across the country. According to RealtyTrac, Arizona had

The Foothills Focus

114,000 new foreclosure filings in 2011 – one of the highest in the nation. During the first half of 2012, Arizona had the second highest foreclosure rate in the country with more than 49,000 new filings. During the first six months of 2012, more than one million households nationwide were affected by foreclosures. The second quarter of 2012 saw a spike in the number of new foreclosure filings with a nine percent increase over the first quarter and six percent increase from the second quarter of 2011. Foreclosure victims, like all movers, face hurdles to voting that include updating their address or reregistering to vote in a new jurisdiction.

traffic ticket, then I would be very popular with some; but I also would not be doing my job. (Obviously, I would be less than popular with law enforcement officers.) If I set aside some fines for people who seemed nice, then that would be a problem as well. One of the worst things a judge can be is arbitrary. While there are always exceptions to general rules, the law must be consistently applied to everyone. Your choice of sports team, political party, hair color or tattoos can neither be an aggravating nor mitigating factor. Even so, if you are charged with an alcohol related offense (DUI, underage drinking, etc.), then it is probably a very bad idea to show up for your arraignment wearing a t-shirt containing advertising for an alcoholic beverage. In Maricopa County, being a justice of the peace can also be challenging because of the sheer volume of cases. For example, the North Valley Justice Court

had the following incoming cases filed in August 2012: 39 DUIs, 148 other criminal traffic violations, 86 other misdemeanor cases, 369 civil traffic cases, 48 small claims cases, 307 eviction actions, 441 other civil lawsuits (mostly collection actions), 15 orders of protection and 14 injunctions against harassment. The court also collected $80,145.48 in fines in August. Justice courts remain section of the judicial branch where the average citizen is most

likely to interact with the legal system. While some people are obviously there involuntarily, justice courts are designed to be and remain user friendly. For additional information on the justice court judges, their locations and on sample forms, go to: http://justicecourts. maricopa.gov/ Judge Gerald Williams is the presiding justice of the peace for the Northwest Regional Court Center. His column appears monthly in The Foothills Focus.

The steps that need to be taken are often determined by whether or not an individual has acquired a new residence and has done so before the state voter registration deadline. For foreclosure victims, where in the foreclosure process the individual is can make a difference in what they need to do in order to vote. Those forced from their homes are confronted with challenges to protect their right to vote, including establishing residence, updating the documentation needed to prove their voting residence, and meeting conflicting and often confusing state-imposed registration deadlines. In each state, one must reside or be deemed to have a residence in order to cast a ballot in that state. However, election laws vary state-by-state with regards

to a voter’s residency or voting domicile. In some states, the law is straight forward. In California, the state with the highest number of foreclosures, and 17 other states, a person can continue voting at the address of their foreclosed home until they establish a new residence in which they intend to remain. In other states, the correct polling place for a foreclosure victim is often more confusing. Compounding the problem, over the past two years several states have passed laws that add extra obstacles for voters to cast a ballot. For instance, in Florida, registered voters who have moved are no longer able to update their registration on Election Day and vote a regular ballot if they move outside of the county in which they were registered. In several other states, voters are now required

to show a photo ID with a current address in order to vote. These new voter ID laws are just one more challenge a voter has to overcome to cast a ballot – especially if they do not already have an acceptable ID. And obtaining an ID could be even more challenging if they do not have documentation to prove residency in the state because they lack a permanent residence. The Fair Elections Legal Network is distributing the report to the nation’s secretaries of state asking them to educate their state’s foreclosure victims as to their rights to vote. FELN’s report “Lose Your Home, Keep Your Vote: How to Protect Voters Caught Up in Foreclosure” can be found at www.fairelectionsnetwork.com/ resources/foreclosure.
