The Star Tribune examines the issue of voter fraud in Minnesota, where state residents are poised to decide on a ballot measure that would require voters to bring a photo ID to the polls. The campaigns on both sides of the issue sharply disagree on whether fraud is a problem that requires a constitutional amendment to fix it.
Meanwhile, a Star Tribune poll shows that voters are poised to approve the voter ID measure.
The issue recently was hotly debated by high-profile advocates and opponents of the measure in Rochester.
The state's major newspaper editorial boards have had their say. In an editorial over the weekend, the St. Paul Pioneer Press argues that the voter ID measure would "tighten up" a loose system. The Star Tribune urged a "no" vote, arguing that it is too costly and unnecessary.
Wondering how other states have dealt with this? The National Conference of State Legislatures has a useful map that boils it down.
