Willmar Mayor Yanish declares support for voter ID amendment

WILLMAR -- Willmar Mayor Frank Yanish has declared his support for the proposed amendment to the Minnesota Constitution that would require voters to present a photo ID to vote. The amendment will be on the ballot in the Nov. 6 general election.

Yanish told reporters this morning at his tire shop that he wanted to declare his support for the amendment after mayors in other cities including Rochester, Minneapolis and St. Paul recently declared their opposition to the amendment.

Also attending the press conference were amendment supporters Republican legislators State Sen. Joe Gimse and State Rep. Bruce Vogel, both of Willmar.
