The Minnesota statutory election system allows ineligible persons who register on election-day to vote, accepting voter self-certification and failing to verify eligibility until after their votes are counted.
The Minnesota Voters Alliance continues to challenge the Minnesota Secretary of State on these practices. They are going to the Supreme Court level seeking immediate relief from ineligible voters being permitted to cast votes in every election through the state.
Are the impacts of such actions minimal? Remember that Al Franken was elected in 2008 by a mere 312 votes out of 2.9 million cast. In that race, more than 500,000 voters registered on election day, voted, and their eligibility verified after the election had been decided. More than 48,000 of those voters could not be confirmed as eligible.
