Push begins to get voter ID on ballot

Supporters of a photo identification requirement to vote in Minnesota say they now want the issue on the ballot in 2012.

Sen. Scott Newman, R-Hutchinson, said he was disappointed by DFL Governor Mark Dayton’s veto of the bill last month. That’s why he’s introducing legislation that would bypass Dayton and make the election law changes through a constitutional amendment. During a Capitol news conference today, Newman said he wants to move quickly next year to pass the measure. But he said he would not try to bring it up sooner.
