Stop Voter Suppression!
I oppose a Voter Identification Amendment to the Minnesota State Constitution. If a Voter Identification Amendment is on presented on the ballot in November 2012, I commit to VOTE NO.
Why is this important?
The conservative-controlled state legislature in Minnesota wants to use the Minnesota state constitution to take away our right to vote.
They are pushing a constitutional amendment toward the November ballot that would restrict voting only to those who can present a photo I.D. with their current address. Tens of thousands of law-abiding Minnesotans would lose their right to vote.
This is nothing more than a modern day poll tax - an intentional attack on our democracy by corporations and the 1% who want to permanently cut out whole swaths of the electorate.
