Last week, I wrote about how the Voter ID constitutional amendment wouldn’t stop vote fraud. In it I pointed to the 114 convictions, 0.011% of all the votes cast, and that only 1 case might have been prevented — a non-citizen voting.
Actually, I was wrong.
A reader pointed out that non-citizens that are here legally are given driver’s licenses that do not indicate they are non-citizens.
So … it turns out that the voter ID constitutional amendment wouldn’t have prevented any of the 114 vote fraud cases in Ramsey County between 2006 and 2011.
But this constitutional amendment was never about vote fraud, its about vote suppression. Its about eliminating same-day registration.
