Voter ID Could Cost Just One County Nearly $1 Million To Implement

Today, Minnesota voters will decide whether to amend their state constitution to require voters to show photo ID at the polls, a common voter suppression requirement that disenfranchises many minority, low-income and student voters. If this voter suppression amendment passes, however, it could cost Minnesotans more than just many people’s votes. One Minnesota county estimates costs up to nearly $1 million if it is forced to implement voter ID.
