Dayton ‘willing to look at’ Voter ID bill but wants quarterly finance reports

Gov.

Gov. Mark Dayton said today he’d be willing to look at a Voter ID bill working its way through the Legislature.

That caught the attention of many Capitol watchers because the bill — which would require voters to show identification before voting — has seemed anathema to Dayton and DFLers in the past.

But Dayton said any election reform bill he signs must have provisions for quarterly campaign finance reporting — a more frequent reporting period than now required.

He was interviewed on MPR by Cathy Wurzer.
