The chief author of the proposed constitutional amendment requiring a photo ID at the election polls says she is confident the Minnesota State Supreme Court will not throw it out.
Republican Representative Mary Kiffmeyer says similar amendments have been upheld in two other states. Kiffmeyer says there has been widespread support of the proposed amendment in Minnesota as a way to preserve the integrity of the voting process.
Kiffmeyer says the amendment does nothing to discourage same-day registration or absentee voting. People who want to vote will simply have to prove they are who they say they are.
