The Ramsey County Board of Commissioners has voted to oppose the proposed Voter ID constitutional amendment.

The board voted 6-1 on the resolution on Tuesday.

According to the statement from the board, Minnesota’s election system is already known for its “high level of accuracy and integrity,” and the amendment would disenfranchise eligible voters who do not have picture IDs. The resolution also says it would cost Ramsey County $1.25 million to implement.
