More on Voter ID in Minnesota

Here's a recent, cogent piece by the Minnesota ACLU's Chuck Samuelson on why the voter ID requirements are a bad idea.

Two key terms to use in future discussions: "internal passport" and "poll tax."

Now if only we can get 31 percent of the voting public to read just one article making these obvious arguments against the constitutional amendment, assuming it gets onto the ballot. (A recent poll found that 80 percent of Minnesotans supported the idea of requiring photo ID in order to vote.)
