Odd result for Duluth/Northeast and does anyone really believe only 22% of Democrats want voter ID?

First, full disclosure. I oppose the voter I.D. amendment. But whether i did or not i would still urge all Minnesotans to oppose it and vote NO. As citizens, as human beings, our ability to look into the future is extremely limited. Having the ability to negate the political process of legislation is not the same as needing to do it. This is a solution without a problem being used to limit participation in government. Can we seriously believe this is good, equitable or reflects well on us. Freedom includes the concept of not doing something. The Minnesota Constitution is a document meant to protect us all, granting rights to the people, not taking them away.

mdgoldner- Much more vile then the ID law is the act of presenting these polls as actual data when the purpose is to discourage people voting against, in this case, the editors point of view. Minnesota had 300 cases of prosecuited fraud during the Franken vote, enough to sway the election the other way. Wouldn't you say that media telling untruths, half truths, made up stories or just throwing their support behind a candidate amounts to free advertising and voter fraud? This paper is not impartial, it has no Conservative journalists on it's regular staff even though half the state is conservative. Bottom line, a lie told often enough becomes the truth and some people believe it. As they say "if the shoe fits"

@ notaxmax - "Minnesota had 300 cases of prosecuited fraud during the Franken vote, enough to sway the election the other way." ------ And this voter ID law would have caught none of them. The ONLY thing this Voter ID law would prevent is "voter impersonation" - which rarely, if ever, happens. This Voter ID law is a thinly-veiled and massively expensive attempt to suppress voting.

I would be that most of these people have NEVER worked as Election Judge. If they had they would realize that the idea of Voter Fraud is GREATLY exagerated. Identity/legitimacy is checked. This Voter ID thing is outrageous. If you want to make a LAW is fine but why change the Constitution -- OVERKILL.

I guess when you lack any clue to solving real problems,you solve problems that don't exist.
