Exciting news: A new reform to in-person absentee voting will now allow absentee voters in the seven days before the election to place their ballot directly in the tabulator — the same as a voter would do on Election Day. This is going to help reduce lines at voting sites, save counties money, and ensure that voters know their ballot was accepted.
Secretary Simon pushed to have this new reform included in the Elections Omnibus Bill, which was signed by the Governor.
As more Minnesotans continue to take advantage of opportunities to vote before Election Day, we should always be looking for ways to make the process easier and more efficient for eligible voters. A big win for Minnesota voters!
