Minnesota: Pawlenty vetoes Motor Voter registration bill

Pawlenty vetoes Motor Voter registration bill:

Gov. Tim Pawlenty has vetoed so-called Motor Voter legislation, which would have allowed automatic voter registration for anyone applying for a driver's license or state identification card, unless the applicant opts not to be registered.

Pawlenty, in a letter to Secretary of State Mark Ritchie and legislative leaders, said he rejected the bill Thursday because 'registration to vote should be a voluntary, intentional act.'
