Hopkins Sees Close Voting Rates for Voter ID, Marriage Amendment

The community had the sixth most-even rates of the 38 communities that Patch covers.

Hopkins voters marked yes on the voter ID and marriage amendments at one of the most even rates in the communities Patch covers.

The voter ID amendment saw 37.62 percent of votes marked yes—just 2.33 percent more than the 35.29 percent yes votes that the marriage amendment received. While most cities tended to vote similarly on both amendments, Hopkins had the sixth closest rates of the 38 cities that Patch covers.

Most cities that Patch serves had more support for the voter ID than the marriage amendment. And some, including seven around Lake Minnetonka, registered greater support for voter ID by between 11 and 16 percentage points.

Just two Patch cities—Roseville and Fridley—had greater support for the marriage amendment than voter ID.

I think it's interesting that only a single one, just one, Patch community voted to pass the Anti-Gay Marriage Amendment. Remind me to stay out of St. Michael.
