I’ve been a strong supporter of election integrity my entire career — in my first term, I voted to put Voter ID on the ballot, and have supported numerous efforts over the years to pass provisional balloting, strengthen penalties for voter fraud, and more. That’s why I introduced the Minnesota Election Integrity Act, which would be a game-changer and the most significant election bill in recent history.
- Statewide Voter ID for all elections
- Provisional balloting so we confirm that people are who they say they are, and live where they say they live when they vote at a new address for the first time
- Banning ballot harvesting
- Banning “pop-up” voting sites
- Banning “Zuckerbucks” which would prohibit shadowy non-profit groups from funding government election operations
- Increasing penalties for Voter Fraud
- Stopping illegal immigrant voting
Not even one day after I introduced the most significant election integrity bill in Minnesota history, the State Democrat party is already attacking me. They know that I’m on the side of Minnesotans, and that the vast majority of Americans support Voter ID and other election integrity measures. If Democrats won’t act this year, Republicans must keep up the fight and pass Voter ID and election integrity bills when we take the majority this fall.
