'Voter ID' proposal to be on November statewide ballot -- GOP plan would amend state constitution
ST. PAUL - Now it's up to the voters.
Minnesotans will decide on Nov. 6 whether showing photographic identification before casting ballots should be required.
The Legislature approved the Republican-backed constitutional amendment proposal Wednesday, the Senate 35-29 and the House 72-57. The vote fell along party lines other than Republican Sen. Jeremy Miller of Winona's "no" vote.
