DULUTH - The state's human rights commissioner made a stop in Duluth
He was in town to talk hot– button issues appearing on November’s
ballot. Commissioner Kevin Lindsey first visited UMD for a public forum to discuss
and analyze both proposed amendments, Voter ID and the Marriage Amendment.
"I think we all have to weigh that and say is this
really a solution that we want to implement because maybe the potential
problems that it's going to cause people to vote is a lot more significant than
what it's worth," said Kevin Lindsey, the Minnesota Department of Human
Lindsey says it's important for voters to understand the cost
associated with Voter ID, which could be more than $100 million. It could also
exclude more than 200,000 voters in the state who don't have photo ID's.
He also conducted a forum at City Hall to discuss Minnesota’s
rapidly changing demographics.
