Simon says the question that would appear on the ballot makes no mention of provisional ballots or that the photo IDs need to be government issued. He says the court may also try to rewrite the language that would appear on the ballot. “Radical rewrite” of Minnesota election laws Rep. Steve Simon says the proposed voter photo ID constitutional amendment is a “radical rewrite” of Minnesota election laws because it changes absentee balloting and same day registration. Representative Ryan Winkler says Republicans promised to focus on jobs, but their real priority was a radical rewrite of Minnesota’s election laws.
