Ritchie No Fan of Voter ID in Minnesota

It was a purely symbolic gesture, but governor Dayton did it anyway.  The Minnesota governor vetoed a voter ID bill yesterday.  Doesn't mean a thing because it's a constitutional amendment.  Voters get the final say on the measure.  Not the governor.   Too bad, says Secretary of State Mark Ritchie.  Because, he says, voter ID really is unneeded in the state



Ritchie says the worst part of the bill is that it does away with same day voter registration.  He says that's the part of current Minnesota law that keeps the state's voter turnout the highest in the nation.
