REASONS TO VOTE NO
Another Unfunded Mandate Costing Us Millions
Local elections officials and the Secretary of State’s office estimate that it would cost state and local governments $50 million or more to implement a complicated new system, raising property taxes and imposing even more cuts to our schools, police and other first responders.
Ends Election Day Registration & Mail-In Balloting
Over 500,000 Minnesotans use same-day voter registration to cast their ballots in Presidential elections, and 250,000 vote by absentee or mail-in ballot, many from nursing homes and military bases overseas. If this harmful amendment passes, many of these voters will be forced into a complicated two-step system of provisional balloting–casting votes that may never be counted.
No Safeguards for Active-Duty Military or Senior Voters
This harmful amendment provides no alternatives for our seniors in nursing homes or military members defending our freedoms overseas.
A Costly and Complicated Overhaul of Minnesota’s Nationally-Recognized Elections System
Minnesota’s elections system is recognized nationally as the best. Our system isn’t broken. There is every reason to protect our existing system and no reason to make such a costly and harmful overhaul.
Send It Back!
The legislature got it wrong. We shouldn’t have to pay the price for their failing to figure out the details. Send the Voter Restriction Amendment back so we can get it right for our military, seniors, students and all Minnesotans.
The Voter Restriction Amendment is Costly and Poorly Written with Serious Consequences for Eligible Voters
