LeMieur Backs Voter ID

The Minnesota State House has approved the Voter ID bill.  Voters would be required to show a legal ID before they could cast a ballot.

The measure passed along party lines.  In the majority was State Representative Mike LeMieur a Republican from Little Falls who says Minnesotans have to show an ID to buy cough syrup and to rent a movie.

LeMieur says the long held tradition of vouching for voters without ID has got to stop.

The measure passed mostly along party lines.  DFL-ers say the measure would discourage seniors, students and the low income from voting.
