Support for stressed seniors

Peer counseling is an effective way for older adults to help one another. There are everyday problems in growing older. Also, there are big changes—such as loss, family conflict, and disability due to illness—that leave people in need of support. Sandoval Senior Connection, a division of Outcomes, Inc., can provide trained senior volunteer counselors who are ready to listen. They can help you deal with emotional stresses that get in the way of your physical health. They can free up energy so you can feel your best. There is no fee for home visits. For assistance or information, contact Elizabeth or Debbie at Sandoval Senior Connection at 243-2551.

 

New voter-registration requirements

Secretary of state Rebecca Vigil-Giron has issued a memorandum to all thirty-three county clerks in New Mexico to clarify the new federal identification requirements for voter registration.

The Help America Vote Act requires voter identification for all first-time voters registering by mail after January 1, 2003. “In other words,” Vigil-Giron said, “the only registrations needing identification are those with a postmark.” Acceptable identification for mailed registrations includes photocopies of current and valid photo identification, current utility bills, bank statements, government checks, paychecks, or other government documents showing the name and address of the voter registering by mail. Persons who register by mail without enclosing proper identification will be noted on rosters at the polls on Election Day, and they will be asked to submit proper identification before voting.

Citizens registering to vote in person at county-clerk offices or at voter-registration-drive locations are not required to submit identification documents.
