Letter about Voter ID


Fri, Sep 21st, 2012
Posted in Lanesboro Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

Voter ID A Simple Thing?

The Voter Restriction Amendment is not a simple thing at all. It changes Minnesota’s election process which currently works. Local governments would need to raise property taxes to pay for it because it was passed without detail or price tag. Estimates range from $4.5 million to $84 million! It creates obstacles for eligible Minnesota voters, many of whom have legally voted for years: senior citizens; military men and women; those who have recently moved. It would impact more that 700,000 Minnesotans.

Voter Restriction is wrong. Join me to vote NO in kNOwvember.
