Sen. Carlson Backs Voter I.D.

State Senator John Carlson of Bemidji supports a Voter I.D. constitutional amendment on the fall ballot. 

A hearing on the amendment will be held at the state capitol today.  Among those testifying against the amendment is the League of Women Voters.  Senator Carlson tells KLKS News, they are not a non partisan group.  He says the League along with AARP are left-leaning.

Those opposed to the amendment say it would disenfranchise many voters, including students, minorities and the elderly.
