POLL: Do You Agree With the Supreme Court's Amendment Decisions?
On Monday, the justices voted 4-2 in favor of the Republican-controlled Legislature on the wording of the voter ID and same-sex marriage amendments.
On Nov. 6, the ballot titles and questions for the voter ID and same-sex marriage amendments will appear as the Republican-controlled Legislature wrote them, according to the Star Tribune.
On the ballot, the title above the voter ID amendment will be, "Photo Identification Required for Voting." Ritchie changed it to "Changes to In-Person & Absentee Voting & Voter Registration; Provisional Ballots," but Chief Justice Lorie Skjerven Gildea and justices G. Barry Anderson, Christopher Dietzen and David Stras rejected his change.
The title above the same-sex marriage amendment will say, "Recognition of Marriage Solely Between One Man and One Woman." Ritchie wanted the title to say "Limiting the Status of Marriage to Opposite Sex Couples."
