(St. Paul, MN)  --  The Republican-controlled Senate is advancing a bill that would change same-day voter registration in Minnesota.  Those registering to vote on Election Day would fill out a provisional ballot that would be counted only if it's verified they're eligible.  G-O-P Senator Carla Nelson of Rochester said "election integrity is...just as important as voter turnout."  Burnsville Democrat Lindsey Port argued processes are already in place to audit elections, particularly very close ones.  Port said, "this bill does not deter fraud. It deters people's votes from being counted."  She warned that voters in Greater Minnesota might have to travel long distances to address problems with their provisional ballots.
