DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - Former U-S Congressman Jim Oberstar is among those urging a "no" vote on the proposed Voter Photo I-D amendment on November's ballot. Oberstar joined other local officials at a weekend rally in Duluth speaking out about what they call the "Voter Restriction" Amendment. Oberstar says the consequences of the "poorly written" amendment for greater Minnesota is "startling". According to a non partisan organization, Citizens for Election Integrity, the costs in St. Louis County to implement the amendment, that would require a photo i-d to vote, range from 966 thousand to 2.1 million dollars. Supporters say the amendment to the constitution is needed to prevent voter fraud and improve the integrity of elections in the state.
