St. Paul October Meeting

Kathy Bonnifield presents “Voter Photo ID:  Fraud Catcher or Vote Snatcher?”

This November, Minnesotans may be asked to decide 1) if voter fraud is a problem worthy of the cost of implementation, 2) if the proposed law will actually stop the alleged voter fraud and 3) whether voting is an earned privilege such as the use of a credit card or a necessary right for every citizen if we are to live in a democracy.  Our Stillwater/Lake Elmo Mn House Representative Kathy Lohmer co-sponsored the Voter ID legislation.  The proposed law is not without controversy.  A June 12, 2011 USA Today editorial highlighted the proposed Republican Voter ID law concluding that it "smacks of voter suppression."

Kathy Bonnifield is Director of Citizens For Election Integrity of Minnesota.  She has considerable election experience having been an election judge in Ramsey County and the City of Minneapolis plus serving on an election observation mission with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.  Most recently she worked as a Program Administrator for the McKnight Foundation

Breakfast Buffet $11.00 Coffee only $3.00.  We need to plan for the room setup and meal, so if you are going to attend, please RSVP
