It is unfortunately official. The Minnesota Legislature’s Republican majority voted to place yet another issue on the ballot in next November’s election. Continue Reading

Sure Dennis …. It’ all a right-wing conspiracy to deny minorities and such the right to vote.
No, Dennis. These actions nationwide are to make sure that only live, breathing American citizens are voting – and only once per registered voter.
Isn’t it odd that that those who are whining the most about this are from the political party that has been caught so many times, red handed, stuffing the ballot boxes with fraudulent ballots?
Look at all that ACORN fraud!
Give us a break, Dennis. We’re not that gullible.

It’s hard to imagine any functioning person over 18 that doesn’t have some form of ID in this day and age.
It’s hard to cash a check or pay with 1 without ID, buy cigarettes or beer without ID.
I don’t have a issue with making voters have ID when you consider Minnesota Leads the Nation in Voter Fraud Convictions. http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/minnesota-leads-the-nation-in-voter-fraud-convictions-131782928.html …”These convictions are just the tip of the iceberg,” said Davis. “The actual number of illegal votes cast was in the thousands. Most unlawful voters were never charged with a crime because they simply pled ignorance. We have evidence of these people casting illegal ballots, but in Minnesota, ignorance of election law is considered to be an acceptable defense.”

No to mention that most older citizens are on Medicare which necessitates an ID. Also,the poor usually receive government assistance tha requires an ID. Same for those who are disabled. The scrames of disenfranchising this individuals due to no ID is just a smoke screen as they don’t want to talk about why most reasonable people believe that having an ID to vote is necessary.

Facts seem to cloud the minds of a lot of lefties, don’t they? Who are the real victims? The ones who fall for their garbage.

While I really don’t care much one way or the other about this voter ID question, I would like to see something put in that limits the number of issues that can be placed on the ballot in a given election year.

Voter ID is a “no-brainer.” I’m not sure how we ever got away from the idea that you had to prove who you were and where you live before you cast a vote in an election. To me, it is an obvious thing to require. To compare this amendment to Jim Crow laws is really just plain silly. Contrary to Mr. Dalman’s assertion, I think it will go a long way toward curbing voter fraud and that is essential. Without an ID check at the polls, who is to say just how much fraud is indeed occurring undetected now. The opportunity is certainly there for all kinds of shenanigans. Let’s remove that temptation and restore integrity to the whole process.
