Yeah sure Ritchie... Government's recent track record with online security, integrity and reliability has been rock solid. Unreal.

The concept makes sense. The implementation is actually pretty straight forward. Security! Now that's another issue. Perhaps the State of Minnesota should hire "Eric Snowden" to head up the security initiative.

Tell me how anyone knows that the person typing on the online app is the person whose data is being entered? Bill G.

This seems pretty fishy, why move this quickly and create controversy? Hidden agenda?

The most partisan SOS the state of Minnesota has ever seen up to more of his tricks. Let's not forget he was a puppet and financed by the George Soros 'Secretary of State Project'. Since he can't be thrown out of office, he figures he can just do whatever he wants and get yet another liberal vote-getting scheme installed. He needs to be sued over this ASAP.

Can't wait for this partisan extraodinaire to leave the stage. Nobody has moare worked hard and tirelessly at rigging our polling systems in favor of one party.

You need to have a matching MN driver's license or state ID and social security number to register online. Only people that the state already has a record for can register. If you folks took two seconds to actually look at the online form, instead of just talking nonsense, you already know that.

Why do people need to be spoonfed voting??? I'm still mythed at the great lengths we go to drag the uniformed and disinterested to the polls. It's embarrassing that people can't figure voting out without all this handholding and conjouling.

Back when ACORN existed openly, before their embarrassing fall for ethics issues, they were openly going to States to get their Secretary of States elected. THey brought him to MN and the electorate fell for it. The bought and paid for Ritchie is up to no good again. Now instead of people showing up at the polls with handfuls of questionable ballots the dems will have boiler room offices with students registering dead people then mailing absentee ballots in. No more need to find a car days after the election with 800 votes in the trunk for their guy. Re: ID to vote: The dems have forever argued that presenting an ID to vote was too much of a burden for those that cannot manage to even pick up a free ID from the State. Then actually get to the polls? Forget it, meanie republicans. Now they assure us these same helpless people are perfectly capable of logging onto Obamacare.pokeus and signing up for insurance. Maybe the new Obamaphones have an insurance app.
