Joy and Emmanuel Personal Voter Stories GOTV: A Stanley Nelson Production, 2012

October 29, 2012

Joy and Emmanuel were plaintiffs in Advancement Project’s lawsuit challenging a Missouri photo ID ballot initiative. The court struck down the ballot initiative, and both are voting on November 6. Joy Lieberman discusses the concern she had about being unable to renew her photo ID, due to a glitch on her birth certificate (her middle name, which she goes by, isn't on it). Emmanuel Aziz, who has multiple sclerosis and is confined to a wheelchair, explains the difficulties of traveling to multiple offices for the required documentation.
