By: Michael McIntee, UpTake Reporter

Natalie Cook of the Minnesota Public Interest Research Group explains why students oppose a constitutional amendment that would require a government issued photo ID to vote. If IDs aren’t free, she says it amounts to a poll tax.

Senator David Hann (R-Eden Prairie) suggests that students might vote twice, once in their home state and once in MInnesota.

Senator Richard Cohen (DFL-St. Paul) says he knows lots of out of state students that live in Minnesota and none of them do that.
