LIVE VIDEO: Voter ID Amendment Up for Final Legislative Vote

If the Senate approves it today, it will be on November's ballot.

The Minnesota Senate will decide today whether November's ballot should have a proposed constitutional amendment that would—if passed by Minnesota voters—make photo IDs a requirement on Election Day.

The Senate will be taking up the bill right on the heels of the House's final approval, which came shortly after midnight Tuesday.

The issue has divided the Legislature on party lines, with Republican supporters saying it would add integrity to Minnesota's election system, while Democratic opponents say the measure is unnecessary and could disenfranchise some voters.

You can watch live video of today's Senate vote, courtesy of The UpTake, right here on Burnsville Patch starting at 11 a.m.
