ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A group that supports requiring voters to show photo ID is suing the state of Minnesota, saying it’s not doing enough to confirm voter eligibility.

The Minnesota Voters Alliance filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday. The group says 48,000 of the 500,000 voters who registered on election day in 2008 are “unconfirmable.”

President Andy Cilek says its figure is based on freedom of information requests to the secretary of state’s office that found that many voters were challenged or inactive.

The Secretary of State’s office says it is reviewing the lawsuit and will not comment on it.
