ST. PAUL, Minn. -- A group opposed to Minnesota's same-day voter registration law has asked the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate problems it suspects with the state's voter rolls. Minnesota Majority president Jeff Davis says he's not satisfied with county officials' response to his questions about voter records showing bad addresses, improbable birth dates and other irregularities. He is asking for a probe along the lines of a Wisconsin investigation into the 2004 election. Davis says he opposes same-day voter registration and wants to require voters to show photo identification before they cast ballots. He says his request is not related to the recount in the U.S. Senate race. David Anderson, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office in Minnesota, says the department reviews complaints and takes action when appropriate.
