Hosemann says voter ID should pass next year

JACKSON — Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann says Mississippi voters will have a chance to shape the state’s history next year, as three statewide referendums will be on the November 2011 ballot.

The Natchez Democrat reports Hosemann, speaking yesterday at a local civic club, says he expects a requirement for voters provide an ID when at the polls to pass.

Hosemann says more than two-dozen statewide referendums have been attempted in Mississippi’s history but none has passed.

He says he also expects voters to approve a “personhood” amendment that states that life begins at conception, not birth; and an amendment that would prohibit state and local government from taking private land through use of eminent domain and giving it to any other person or business.
