ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — It’s a question often heard in the days before the election.
Secretary of State Mark Ritchie hears it every season. Between registration, absentee ballots and changing districts, voters don’t know where to go or who to vote for.
“In fact we get hundreds and hundreds of phone calls a day here. And for a few weeks, or months, there are people asking about voter registration or ‘how do I get an absentee ballot’? And then it begins to change to, ‘whoa, who are all these judges and what is a soil & water conservation district?’” said Ritchie.

New this election is “My Ballot,” an online resource that will produce your personal ballot once you type in your address at the Secretary of State’s Office web site.
There’s also a polling place finder, which is especially important this year because many voters will be casting ballots in a new precinct as a result of re-districting.
