VICTORY: Minnesota Rejects Voter ID Amendment

Minnesota.Legislature

When the GOP-controlled Minnesota Legislature agreed to put a pro-voter ID constitutional amendment on the November 6 ballot, they thought it would be a sure win. Voting rights groups immediately denounced the ballot measure as a way to suppress turnout by elderly people, young people, and minorities, who are least likely to have identification showing their current address. Liz Loeb started a MoveOn Petition asking members to pledge to vote against the amendment. With the campaigning efforts of community groups and Minnesota voters like Loeb, the voter ID constitutional amendment was rejected on Election Day.
