The American Association of Retired People is among the groups that has been opposing the proposed Voter ID amendment to Minnesota's constitution. AARP-Minnesota Director Michelle Kimball says there are about 64,000 older Minnesotans who no longer have a valid driver's license...something Kimball says would be a barrier to voting if the measure were to pass.
Former Republican Governor Arne Carlson has allied himself with groups that oppose the measure. He tells Winona Radio that he can understand that on the surface the proposal to require an ID sounds reasonable. But delving into details of the proposal, Carlson says, will reveal major roadblocks to Minnesotans exercising their right to vote.
