In "English-only voters" (Forum, Sept. 19), Aaron Cloward complained that the state's website vote.utah.gov is not translated into Spanish. Cloward wants governments to "provide bilingual voting information to its citizens."

As a naturalized American citizen and erstwhile Dutchman, I totally agree.

Where is the bilingual information for us Dutch-Americans, for Germans, Poles, French, Indian, African, etc.?

Unlike Spanish speakers, in order to vote, we all have to understand this nation's English language. It's not fair.
