Public hearings have not been held since that provision was added and today Senate Majority Leader David Senjem refused to comment on whether there would be public hearings. Senate Minority Leader Tom Bakk says provisional ballots could add a week to determining an election winner. He is against such a constitutional amendment and says any requirements should be done in statute instead. He said Technology is changing and suggested it might be smarter to have the state take pictures of voters and have them on a website than it would be to have voters carry around an photo ID card.
