Minnesota voters have shot down the Voter ID amendment, but even just a few weeks ago, it had overwhelming support. So, how did this happen?
There were a few voting problems around the state as about three million voters hit the polls for Election Day.
Minnesota voters voted on two major changes to their state constitution Tuesday, proposals to prohibit gay marriage and require photo identification for voting that sparked campaigns far more heated than usual for constitutional amendments.

Minnesota polling precincts have opened across the state to welcome waiting voters. Light drizzle was falling in the eastern part of the state, but was moving out and a dry day was forecast.

An unplanned trip to the hospital in Minnesota won’t leave you without an opportunity to cast a ballot in Tuesday’s pivotal election.
It’s a question often heard in the days before the election. Secretary of State Mark Ritchie hears it every season. Between registration, absentee ballots and changing districts, voters don’t know where to go or who to vote for.
