Minnesota: Secretary of State hears recall threats

Secretary of State Mark Ritchie is facing recall threats due to his changing of the title for a Constitutional Amendment ballot proposal on Voting ID. Note that Minnesota has (as far as I know) never had a a recall election, and has a strict judicial recall standard.

The Legislature's chosen title was: "Photo identification required for voting."  Ritchie, with the approval of the Attorney general, proposed this title: "Changes to in-person & absentee voting & voter registration; provisional ballots." He cited a state law which states that the Secretary of State shall determine the title of ballot questions
