These concerned citizens have taken the lead in discouraging those newer citizens from making a mistake at the polls three weeks from now.
The state's attorney general's office is looking into possible felony charges against the sender of the letter. That is, if they can figure out who sent it. The good Samaritan who penned the warning chose to be anonymous. What a surprise.
