Minn. voters decide if they should show IDs in next election

High voter turnout expected despite lack of top-of-ballot action
ST. PAUL -- Presidential candidates have all but ignored Minnesota. The U.S. Senate race has been a snoozer, as have some U.S. House races. But get down the ballot a ways and two proposed constitutional amendments have generated plenty of sparks.

Letter: Voter ID is fraud, vote no
Here are a few things to think about before you vote on the proposed Voter ID amendment to the Minnesota constitution. The amendment is a purely Republican proposal. Only Republicans voted for it in the Minnesota House and Senate. All Democratic senators and representatives voted...

Letter: Integrity of the vote
I don't think people are "disenfranchised" when they are required to have a photo ID to buy alcohol, cigarettes, Sudafed, to board a plane, drive a car, enter federal buildings, cash a check, go to some movies, rent a car or a hotel room. You get the idea. Isn't it more important...

Letter: It's common sense to vote no
Before you vote on the proposed voter ID amendment to the Minnesota Constitution, stop to consider what organizations oppose the amendment. The League of Women Voters and AARP both urge you to vote no. Both Catholic Charities and Lutheran Social Services oppose the amendment. In...

Letter: Vote no on voter ID
Lutheran Social Services lists the following groups who are without government issued photo IDs: * 18 percent of the elderly * 10 percent of people with disabilities * 18 percent of citizens aged 18-24 * 200,000 registered voters in Minnesota Michael Freeman, son of former Governor...

Letter: Don't limit voting right
I urge you to vote no on the voter ID amendment. The voter ID requirement is a solution in search of a problem. Furthermore, the "solution" is not at this point at all well-defined. The only language in the proposed amendment describing the ID is that it be a "valid government-issued...

Letter: Stop voter fraud
Certain people get desperate when they think they are going to lose. They make up half-truths and tell lies. They substitute their reality for the truth. The voter ID amendment is getting saturated with falsehoods now before the election. Whether it's Joan Growe, former Secretary...

Letter: Protect our right to vote
I've always been proud of the fact that Minnesota has one of the highest voter turnouts, if not the highest, in our nation. That's why it is so disappointing that the Republican-majority Legislature decided to disenfranchise and discriminate against everyday Minnesota citizens in...

Letter: The actual ballot language
As I visit with Minnesotans across the state, many are surprised to learn that they never get to see the actual language of the two proposed changes to our state's constitution on their ballot. This seems odd to many voters, given the importance of the constitution as our state's...
