In 14 Cities Patch Covers, Voters Favored MN Voter ID Amendment
Northfield was far from being one of those cities.
Here's how residents in a selection of Minnesota cities voted on the proposed Voter ID amendment to the state Constitution, which would have required photo ID at polling places.
Statewide, the ballot measure failed to pass the 50 percent level of support it needed (46.34 percent with all but three Minnesota precincts' results). But if citizens in 14 of these 36 Patch communities had their way, the state Constitution would have a new amendment.
Support for the amendment in these cities covered by Patch ranged from 19.30 percent in Southwest Minneapolis to 61.23 percent in St. Michael. (Lake Minnetonka Patch covers several cities, including Minnetrista, Tonka Bay, Wayzata, Mound, Shorewood, Orono, Spring Park, Deephaven, Long Lake and Excelsior.)
"No" in the table below also includes ballots on which voter left "Yes" and "No" blank.

These are unofficial figures until local canvassing boards verify them. These are the figures available on Nov. 7, 2012, but they may change as election workers revise their estimates of total ballots cast, or their counts of ballots with Yes, No, or no mark for the amendment.
