The fight continues in Cape Vincent with the Town Board passing a law requiring the presentation of a driver's license with a Cape address be presented in order to vote. The reason is the apparent effort to fluff up the voter rolls with seasonal residents opposed to wind development.
Such a law will not stand as its contrary to state law and a town board cannot impose such restrictions. It is interesting to follow the Cape, where wind has created real interest in local government and most of the rest of the county, where there are no contests.
