The thing in Minn. was about the Democrats trying to get young people bused into Minn. to help get out the vote for Wellstone likely leading to illegal votes from these people.

Now, I have a question. How exactly is it that requiring ID restricts voters? I see this quoted all the time from Democrats. What are the mechanics of how this stops voters?besides not having ID which is easily remedied.

Right now, in Minnesota, you walk to the polling place with a friend who is already registered, he vouches for you - says he knows who you are and that you live in the precinct, and you get to vote.

There was a bill in the legislature last year that would limit the number of new voters that a registered voter would be allowed to vouch for to ten, but the Democrats killed it.

I think that is a red herring argument. They are putting that up as a throw away point. When they do agree, they say, okay, ID is fine. Now, it should be okay to present it on election day. We gave in on ID, now how much more unreasonable do you want to be? So they say.
