Photo ID rejected, but could return
ST. PAUL - Lawmakers rejected a plan requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls, but expect to see the legislation again.

"Without a photo ID requirement as part of our election process ... it calls into question the integrity of the process," said Emmer, R-Delano.
