AARP to Host Forums on Photo I.D. Amdendment Question
ST. CLOUD - Members of AARP will be in St. Cloud tomorrow (Tuesday) to talk about the voter photo I.D. amendment that will be on the ballot in November.
They say the amendment would have unintended consequences, like high costs and disenfranchising older voters.
They are holding two community conversations at the Whitney Senior Center, one at 1:30 p.m. and the other at 5:30 p.m. The event is free and open to everyone.
A new Star Tribune Minnesota Poll shows that Minnesotans tend to favor a constitutional change that would require voters to show government-issued photo IDs before casting ballots. But support for the idea has fallen over the past year.
Slightly more than half of likely voters polled - 52 percent - support the photo ID amendment while 44 percent oppose it and 4 percent are undecided.
