Ask this Local League a Question
Voting rights have been under attack in state legislatures across the country for more than a decade and there are no signs of it letting up in 2013.
"Voter ID opponents claimed victory early Wednesday morning with 95 percent of precincts reporting only 45.8 percent in favor of the proposed amendment that would require photographic identification for voting."
" With three weeks left to go before the election, groups in Minnesota are ramping up their efforts related to the two proposed constitutional amendments that will be on the ballot.
... For those who believe that identification requirements are not a barrier to voting, I ask that you consider the callers League of Women Voters talks to every election day. They include the man we helped on the day of the last primary election who is homeless and does not have access to his documents.
"Claire Wilson, director of Voter Outreach for the Minnesota Secretary of State’s Office, conducted two voter information workshops in Park Rapids last week. ... The Park Rapids League of Women Voters arranged for Wilson to speak with Park Rapids and Menahga school seniors and with new voters."
