Minnesota ID card voter bill vetoed by the governor

Democratic governor of Minnesota, Mark Dayton vetoed voter ID bill yesterday. The main reason for the veto was lack of broad, bipartisan support for the bill. Republicans who prepared the bill argued it was for stronger integrity of the voting system and fraud prevention. Dayton rejected those arguments stating that voter fraud is not a big problem in Minnesota according to his belief. The governor set January 15, 2013 as deadline for making changes to the bill that would attract bipartisan support.

As of now 11 states requires ID card to vote, 30 other states are considering changes in the voting process.
