No voter I.D.


The premise behind the proposed voter I.D. amendment it that a voter identification is necessary to secure election integrity. This is a false premise. Voter fraud in Minnesota is virtually nonexistent.

I have been trained and served as a federal election judge numerous times, and not once have I experienced anyone trying to vote in an illegal manner — nor do I know of any other judge who has experienced voter fraud.
