Synopsis

Minnesota Voter ID and the National Debate explains Minnesota's role in the national "voting wars," in which laws and amendments are proposed to impose new voting requirements, including requiring a photo ID for all voters. Journalist Jim Ragsdale writes from the front lines of a political battle that will culminate on November 6, when Minnesota voters will consider a constitutional amendment that would embed photo ID and related changes into the state's Constitution. Ragsdale discusses the history of the franchise nationally and in Minnesota, putting this battle in perspective as one of many involving voting rights and voting integrity, while also explaining the complexity of voting law and its relations to the civil rights movement. That narrative, written to help readers understand not just the Minnesota angle but the importance of the issue nationally, takes a fair-minded, journalistic approach, ending with the research into how these laws have—or have not—affected the way we vote.
