MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — On National Voter Registration Day, organizers are out trying to encourage more people to register to vote. There are still 700,000 eligible voters who haven’t registered.
Here in Minnesota, Secretary of State Mark Ritchie says there is a three-pronged approach.
The first, he says, is making sure everyone knows what the procedure is, and second making people feel welcome to vote.
“There are people coming here from other countries, where they were discouraged or not allowed to vote,” Ritchie said.
