(St. Paul, MN) -- A candidate for Minnesota's Secretary of State is sharing criticisms of some of the state's voting procedures.

Kim Crockett is looking to become Minnesota's Secretary of State in the upcoming General Election. She joined WDAY Midday to share her criticisms of current voting procedures and her distaste of the term "election denier."

"I went to law school... To a good school out in Philadelphia called Penn Law, it's one of the ivy's," said Crockett, when asked about her background, "It's also where the constitution was born and that is why I wanted to go there, it's part of why I worked so hard to get in."

Crockett voiced criticisms about election practices that were used in elections between 2016 and 2020. She says one of her biggest critiques comes from a story she says comes from new voters across Minnesota.

"They say to me 'Kim, it's unbelievable. I can walk in on election day, I don't have to show any I.D and if im not registered to vote, I can registered to vote I can register right then and there and my vote counts, just like everyone else who registered in advance',"chuckled Crockett,.

Crockett says she dislikes being called an "election denier", which she says is a way to shut down conversations surrounding election policy and is a part of cancel culture. She was also asked if practices she described, like same day voter registration and others she lists throughout the interview, created enough irregularities around the country to swing the results of the 2020 election. To which she stated "I think it did affect the outcome, but I don't know it changed the outcome."
