Absentee Balloting Starts Today
Voters who plan to be at the lake in August can cast absentee ballots starting today under Minnesota’s new primary election schedule. The state moved the primary up to August 10th, about a month earlier than the traditional September primary.
Voters can cast absentee ballots if they will be away from home on primary day, have an illness or disability, serve as an election judge in another precinct or have a religious reason for voting early. Absentee voting runs through August 9th.
