Urdahl

(Willmar MN-) Major League Baseball recently punished Georgia because their lawmakers passed voter legislation some feel will make it more difficult to vote. On KWLM's Legislative Review last weekend, Senator Andrew Lang and Representative Dean Urdahl said proposed changes in Minnesota voter law will likely not pass the DFL-controlled Minnesota House. Urdahl says the Minnesota legislation would require a form of identification to vote...

...Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon has repeatedly said there was no voter fraud in Minnesota in the past election, and is a proponent of mail-in voting, something Lang disagrees with...

...Lang says a lot of people do not trust the current voting system. Urdahl says there are many things in this state that requires a valid form of identification, and he has no problem adding voting to that list. The proposed voter i.d. legislation includes funding to provide anyone who asks for it with a photo i.d. they can use for voting. Minnesota saw record numbers of people voting by mail or absentee last year because of fears of spreading or contracting COVID-19 by voting in person.
