Activated Voices: Young Vet Battles Voter ID

October 15, 2012 By Tom Niemisto, Video Production Specialist

Education underfunding, growing poverty, health care disparities, the list goes on. What did the conservative-led legislature do to help solve these problems? Very little. Instead, it offered two state constitutional amendments to distract Minnesotans from the state's real challenges.

Frustrated by this inaction, US Army veteran Alex Erickson, who oversaw Iraq's first post-Saddam Hussein elections, is taking action against voter restrictions for the sake of all Minnesotans, including others serving overseas.

After watching today's video, hop on over to today's Tuesday Talk discussion about the voter ID amendment's long-term consequences. We'd love to hear your thoughts!
