On Nov. 6, Minnesotans will vote on whether to amend the state constitution to require a photo ID to vote. The proposed amendment would change how future Minnesota elections work and create several new requirements.

The question you'll see on your ballot mentions two of the requirements: voters would need a valid photo ID to vote, and the state must give free IDs to eligible voters.

However, the language that will be added to the constitution if it passes is three times as long as the ballot question and adds several more requirements, such as a new system of provisional balloting.

Watch this video to find out what we know about these possible changes to Minnesota's voting system -- and the questions that remain.
