Voter Photo ID: Does Minnesota Need It?

The League of Women Voters invites you to a public panel discussion on Voter Photo Identification.

9:00-9:30 Coffee & Connecting
9:30-11:00 Program

Panel Members:
Moderator: Helen Palmer, Past President of the Minnesota League of Women Voters
Pro: Rep. Mary Kiffmeyer(R) 16B, Big Lake (Speaker Change)
Con: Rep. Steve Simon (D) 44A, Hopkins, St. Louis Park
Sec. of State Office: Beth Fraser, Director of Governmental Affairs (Speaker Change)

Legislation (HF 210/ HF 89) has been introduced requiring Voters to present photo ID at the polls, for both new registration and for voting. A new Provisional Ballot procedure is de-fined for registered voters unable to provide the ID. Does Minnesota need Voter Photo ID? What voter fraud does this address? What are the impacts of the bill to state and local budg-ets, voter costs, voter turnout, and election results tabulation? The public is invited to attend this panel discussion to hear from all sides of the Voter Photo ID issue.
