Omdahl: Is voter ID program worth $700K?
During the 2014 election cycle, North Dakota will be spending $700,000 on advertisements to remind voters that they now need an ID to vote and that ID voting is as “easy as pie.”
The first defense for spending this huge sum of money is that it is federal money. If this money had to come from the state treasury, it would never be spent. But we all know that federal money is cheap so we can spend it without justification.
