Minnesotans better hope the photos on their voter IDs will be clearer than the funding picture for the bill that will require them. Minnesota Voter Identification bill, SF 509, was passed on the Senate Floor around 3:30 AM Thursday. The bill could disenfranchise many elderly,and young Minnesota voters. The source of the bill’s funding is still a matter of confusion as well. For that and many other reasons, the bill will likely be vetoed by Governor Mark Dayton. A bill that would put the issue on the ballot is also working its way through the legislature.
