I can tell you firsthand it’s a simple process to vouch for an unregistered voter

At Sanford Middle School in South Minneapolis, I got in line with hundreds of people who wanted to vote before work.
I got there at 7:50 a.m. and finished voting at 9:05 a.m. By then, I was voter number 462. When I left, the line was down to just a few dozen people.

While in line, I noticed a woman with a bright red bike helmet, and it turns out we are casual acquaintances. She works in a local coffee shop.

She hadn’t registered to vote yet, so I vouched for her. It was the first time I’ve done that. It’s quite simple: You just need a registration number, address and signature. The poll worker was helpful, making the process easy and quick.

    I’ll be trekking over to Van Cleve Park with my electric bill later in the afternoon.

    Frankly, that registration is this easy concerns me a great deal (no reflection on those individuals posting here, I hasten to add). Especially as this story accompanies David Brauer’s link to Fox9’s story about 93 convicted felons being registered.
