Another waste of taxpayers money by the Republicans who promised to focus on jobs jobs jobs. I hope the voters remember their misleading promises in November 2012. They have spend the entire sessions on guns, use of excessive force, gay marriage, and now this ridiculous topic. As the party who claims to care about taxes, they seem to be quite willing to take our money for accomplishing NOTHING! Minnesotans need to vote out all incumbents until they start addressing real issues.

Voter ID has already been upheld by the US Supreme Court, which held that it was fine to require ID. In the many other states that require ID, there is no evidence of any 'disenfranchisement' of voters. In some states, voting numbers went UP after voter ID was implemented. But those against voter ID keep trying to repeat the 'big lie' of 'voter suppression', hoping that if they keep repeating it, people might actually believe it. Sorry, it appears it ain't working.

75% of Minnesotans want it. The hard left hates the idea of moving way from a loosey goosey system that allows 100s of thousands of people to vote with no proof they're residents of MN or the US.

If this issue passes this year and is voted in we can finally have some confidence in election results where major offices are decided by a 100 votes.

BTW, 29 judges in WI signed a petition to recall Governor Walker. No wonder conservatives don't trust the judiciary! More reasons for Voter ID and honest election results!

What's to debate about a 1 line Amendment? There's NOTHING in it!

Sorry Mary Kiff, this amendment this does not maximize the ability of all to vote. Pay for a free voter ID for all into this amendment.

My son is a 30yr special ed guy who works full time and has had an offical state of MN photo ID since he was 16. He doesn't drive. What's so tough, unless, you're really not a resident of the US?
