The St. Cloud Unitarian Universalist Fellowship has taken a public stand against the proposed Minnesota Constitutional Amendment requiring a photo ID to vote. At its October meeting, the UUF Executive Board approved the following statement: “The St. Cloud Unitarian Universalist Fellowship opposes any amendment to the Minnesota Constitution that requires all voters to present valid photo identification to vote. This proposed amendment is a violation of our religious values and the principles of our religious denomination, the Unitarian Universalist Association.”
Ellen Mork, past president of the St. Cloud Area League of Women Voters, spoke at UUF on Sunday, Oct. 21 regarding the potentially harmful effects of the amendment to the democratic election process, and members gathered that day to review the arguments for and against the amendment.
