Whatever the results, Minnesotans will get the government they deserve.

Those claiming voter suppression are grasping. The public does not know how much fraud/errors are inerrant in our elections but common sense should tell us it exists. Would this amendment help resolve some of it? Perhaps. How much $ should be spent in attempt? Likely too much because if this passes the Gov't will create some enormous, inefficient system for ID's. but then again I don't know anyone without a Drivers License. And anyone too frail to "stand in line for an ID" should also be too frail to stand in line to vote.

So, unfortunately, it looks like enough voters are being bamboozled into thinking this actually accomplishes something worthwhile to get it passed. Apparently, many of them never had a grandmother (or any other relative, for that matter) in a nursing home with no photo I.D. but who nonetheless managed to vote absentee right up through her 97th year.

Wake up, people.

If I could see a list of approved IDs and know for certain how absentee voting and (same-day) registration will be handled, I could vote yes if the plans were reasonable, but because these things aren't clear, I have to vote NO. I guess it's my conservative nature to not go along with uncertain things.

Of course Minnesotan's support the voter ID amendment and election integrity. Too bad it's not already in place before this election.

Do not mess with our constitution! Vote No on everything! Do not let political groups use our constitution for their own gain. Vote No on everything!

There still isn't clarity on this issue. How can one vote yes? Again, this is a legislative issue, not a constitutional one!

"...then again I don't know anyone without a Drivers License. And anyone too frail to "stand in line for an ID" should also be too frail to stand in line to vote."

Anyone too frail to stand in line for an I.D. is too frail to vote? You don't know any elderly people in nursing homes without a photo I.D.? You don't know anyone without a D.L.? Have you been living in a cave? Wake up.

If 100% of conservatives were the only ones to vote for this it could not pass. It will pass because liberals support the cause.
