The voter ID bill is a mean-spirited waste of time. It is an encroachment on fundamental rights that seeks to solve a problem that is not there. The litigation that will follow will continue to waste dollars and divert focus from real Minnesota problems. Finally, the Minnesota constitution should not be used as a political toy.

My vote can be negated by one illegal vote. Protect my right, and protect my vote.
